Welsh Flag History

Discover the tale behind the captivating Welsh flag proudly displayed on uspatriotflags.com. This emblem features a striking red dragon against a backdrop of white and green, representing Wales’ storied history and vibrant culture. Legend has it that Merlin, in a vision, witnessed a white dragon vanquishing a red one, only for the red dragon to triumphantly rise again. This powerful imagery symbolizes the resilience of the Welsh people against Saxon invaders.

In 1953, Queen Elizabeth II bestowed an “honorable augmentation” upon the flag, encircling the dragon with a scroll bearing the inspiring words: “Y’Ddraig Goch Ddyry Cychwyn” – “The Red Dragon leads the way.”

Crafted with two horizontal strips, with white atop green, the Welsh flag stands as a testament to ancient lineage and enduring pride. The red dragon, among the oldest emblems worldwide, traces its origins back to the Romans, who adopted it from the Parthians. Over the ages, it graced the banners of British and Saxon monarchs, including the legendary King Arthur and Cadwalladr, ancestor to the Tudors.

Despite occasional objections citing its pagan roots, with some advocating for the cross of St. David, the red dragon remains firmly entrenched in Welsh identity. Its centuries-long association with Christian princes and its symbolic significance in Welsh struggles for freedom render it an indelible emblem of national spirit and resilience.
