I don't know the origin of the Wireguard logo, but it seems to be a 蛟
 (Jiao, pronounced j-ee-au), not a 龙 (Long)

The differences between Long (know as Chinese dragon) and Jiao is
* Jiao has 2 small straight horns or no horn at all while Long has 2 bigger
  and forky horns
* Long has beard while Jiao has no beard
* Jiao has snake like tail while Long has fish like tail (with round fin)
* Long has 4 claws while Jiao has only 2 claws (foreclaws), but this feature
  is usually misused.

Generally, Jiao is upgraded/developed snake living in rivers; Long is
upgraded/developed Jiao living in the sea, and Long can fly into the sky.

Of course you can call the logo  wireguard dragon as you wish.
