The red dragon has been associated with Wales for centuries, and as such, the flag is claimed to be the oldest national flag still in use.

It is considered that the Welsh kings of Aberffraw first adopted the dragon in the early fifth century in order to symbolise their power and authority after the Romans withdrew from Britain. Later, around the seventh century, it became known as the Red Dragon of Cadwaladr, King of Gwynedd from 655 to 682.

‘A red ffyry dragon peyntid upon white and greene sarcenet’ ('a red fiery dragon painted upon white and green silk') – first saw the light of day on  August 22, 1485, at the Battle of Bosworth Field, when Henry Tudor defeated Richard III.

In celebration of Wales qualifying for the European Championship in France for the first time since 1958, we bring you the beautiful ‘Welsh Dragon’. The nation carries the dragon as a symbol of pride in their history and culture, for it not only connects Wales with global symbolism, but also sets it apart as a unique and vibrant people.

'A nation without a language is a nation without a heart.' 
'Cenedl heb iaith, cenedl heb galon.'

Welsh proverb
