9 Reasons why we love Wales

By Kristina Gore Daffodil

March 1st is St David’s Day! To celebrate all things Welsh on our special day, we’ve put together this list of things that make us proud to be Welsh!

1. Our Coastline

We’re home to the UK’s only coastal national park and boy, what a coastline it is!

2. Our Flag 

Ours is the only flag to feature a dragon and we’re very proud of it (even if it was near impossible to draw back in primary school). 

3. Our Language and Dialect 

...are lush!  

4. Our Countryside 

And the views of our countryside aren’t half bad either...

5. We can sing too!

Yes, the world has Wales to thank for many a global superstar including Shirley Bassey, Katherine Jenkins and (of course this list just wouldn’t be complete without mentioning him) Tom Jones!  

6. Welsh Food and Drink 

We’re lovers of delicious hearty food! Cawl, Welsh Cakes and Welsh Rarebit are just a few of our homemade favourites.

7. Our Pride in our Country

...and how much we LOVE to express it during ANY sporting event! 

8. Our Castles 

The fact that Wales has more castles per square mile than any other country in the world. At one point, Wales had over 600 castles!

9. Our People 

And last but by no means least, the wonderful Welsh people who live here!
