The greens carried the personal sigil of Aegon II Targaryen: a golden dragon representing his mount, Sunfyre the Golden.

The greens, originally known as the queen's party, were the faction of House Targaryen and their loyalists who supported the ascent of Aegon II Targaryen as King of the Seven Kingdoms during the Dance of the Dragons and the years that preceded it. They were opposed by the blacks.[1]

Their name derives from a great tournament held in 111 AC at King's Landing on the fifth anniversary of the King Viserys I's marriage to Queen Alicent Hightower, his second wife. At the opening feast, Queen Alicent wore a green gown, whilst Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen, Viserys’s daughter by his first wife, dressed dramatically in Targaryen red and black. Note was taken, and thereafter their respective factions at the royal court imitated the fashions they set - the "queen's party" dressing in green, and the "party of the princess" dressing in black. In time, it became the custom to refer each party as simply "the greens" and "the blacks".[2]
