Dragons were believed to be the celestial creatures that protected and represented the Chinese emperor. As a result, the presence of dragons on Mandarin squares (cloth badges or insignias) was a clear symbol of the wearer's connection to the imperial court and their service to the emperor.
The depiction of the dragon on Mandarin squares was an art form in and of itself. The skill and intricacy of the embroidery was indicative of the official's rank and status, making Mandarin squares not only a symbol of rank but also a form of artistic expression.
