The Wales Flag, or Red Dragon, or Y Ddraig Goch, is the national flag of this constituent nation of the United Kingdom.
The design – a large red dragon on a white and green background – was officially adopted in 1959. It followed a short-lived version, introduced in 1953, which displayed the dragon on a green mound within a ribbon reading Y ddraig goch ddry cychwyn [‘The red dragon advances’].
The red dragon emblem, however, has been used in Wales since the reign of Cadwaladr (Cadwallader), king of Gwynedd from around 655CE.
