Queen Elizabeth I's Arms

This screen shows the coat-of-arms which incorporates several devices including the Roman SPQR. The dragon is very similar in design to that of the badge of the Buffs. The sun in splendour appears above the dragon's head. Could there be a connection between this and the first known Colour of the Buffs?
