Today, March 1st, is St Davids Day the patron Saint of Wales who was a Celtic monk, abbot and bishop and lived in the sixth century and spread the word of Christianity across Wales.

St Davids Day is commemorated by the wearing of a daffodil or a leek and both plants are regarded as national emblems.

On St Davids Day some ladies in Wales dress in their national costume which traditionally is a tall black hat, white frilled cap and long dress.

The national flag of Wales is also flown on this day and their flag depicts a fiery red dragon, Y Ddraig Goch, against a green and white background.
