    It is generally accepted that the Welsh National costume evolved in the late 1700s. The Welsh National Dress though is only for females. There have been attempts to create a welsh kilt for the men but this has not really taken off.

They still have many admirers, and British citizens who extol their virtues. I am not one of them read more

    The Welsh Flag has just three colours. These are red, white and green.

Dragons may be mythical creatures but they easily represent these traits. read more
