Welsh Proverbs are a traditional and straightforward saying that expresses a truth based on common sense or experience. Some proverbs exist in more than one language because people share with cultures similar to theirs. The popularity of proverbs is due to the universality of their meaning and because most people can relate to them in some way and on some level.

Flag of Wales

The flag of Wales consists of a heraldry styled red dragon on a green and white field. As with many heraldic symbols, the exact representation of the dragon is not standardized, and many renderings exist. The flag incorporates the red dragon of Cadwaladr, King of Gwynedd, along with the Tudor colors of green and white. It was officially recognized as the Welsh national flag in 1959.
