Wales Flag

The Welsh Flag Is one of the oldest flags in human history is the flag of Wales but only adopted in 1959. The red dragon dates back to the 7th century when the Prince of Gwynedd declared it part of his battle standard. The white and green were the colors of Prince Llewellyn.

The national flag of Wales has no presence in the Union Jack, the flag of the United Kingdom. The flags of England, Scotland, and Ireland form the Union Jack. The reason for this is that Wales was annexed to England in 1535, and is represented by St. George’s Cross, the English flag.

The association of a dragon with strength and bravery was common in all of Great Britain at the time, and many kings of the time are said to have included it in some form on their flags or coats of arms. The legendary King Arthur is also said to have had a dragon as his battle standard. Henry V also had a dragon ensign in the Battle of Agincourt.

Flag of St. David’s

Another flag that is often used to unite Welsh nationalists is the flag of St. David. It is a yellow cross on a black rectangle, in the same dimensions as St. George’s Cross. It is mainly used by the Christian Party, who disapprove of the use of the Red Dragon. The flag is widely flown on St. David’s Day.
