Welsh Dragon
Quantity:  £5.70

The Welsh Dragon, that represents Wales as its national Emblem has its roots far back in history. The dragon standard was perhaps first seen in Britain in the shape of the “draco” a standard carried by the Romans.

The red dragon became the symbol of the Welsh nation through its adoption by the Tudor ancestors of king Henry VII. When Henry Tudor faced king Richard III at the battle of Bosworth in 1485 he unfurled a flag depicting a red dragon on a field of white and green.

In 1901 the dragon became the official symbol of Wales. In 1959 the Queen made the red dragon on green and white the official flag for Wales.

This 3D Welsh Dragon is made from lead-free pewter and measures 4cm wide. It is supplied on a card with the Welsh Flag on the front and historical information on the reverse.
