Meaning & History
Nickname or occupational name for someone who carried a standard in battle or else in a pageant or procession, from Middle English, Old French dragon "snake, monster" (Latin draco, genitive draconis, from Greek drakōn, ultimately from derkesthai "to flash"). This word was applied in Late Latin to military standards in the form of windsocks, so resembling snakes.
