Wasn't Hitler fascinated with the legend of Atlantis. He believed Plato's account of the it's superiority and strength in the world. He wanted his nation to be as Atlantis was. I don't remember if he made expeditions to search out the lost continent but I know documentaries speak of his interest in it. I have reason to believe that the early civilizations of Central America have a connection to the legend of Atlantis to varying degrees. Not all that Plato said is correct but the main theme is correct. Here's where the Green Dragon comes into the thought; Take note of the ruins at Teotihuacan near Mexico City. There is the famous pyramids of the Sun and Moon and the temple of Quetzalcoatl which was the feathered serpent. I'm not sure if this creature was displayed as green but I figured it represented a dragon; A winged or flying dragon that is. Is it possible that Hitler wanted to be like the famous Quetzalcoatl who was the Central American savior.
I do not know if this means anything or its just a coincidence but take a look at the title of the Featered-Serpent:

Of course the Nagas and the Garudas most likely symbolize other things as well, related to cultures, races, creation stories, wars, etc.
