"Dydd Gwyl Dewi hapus !"... Happy St David's Day :-)
The illustrations above show two symbols of Wales : the flag, on which you can see St George's Dragon (this legend symbolises when good wins over evil)... and [a field of] daffodils -this flower is another symbol of Wales(2). Dewi Sant is the Welsh name of Saint David, the saint patron of Wales : Saint David's Day falls on March 1.
What do you already know on St David's Day ?
Two days ago, on BBC Radio 2, Brian D'Arcy explored the Welsh national character -in particular their passion for hymns.
The programme lasts 33' : if you are not keen on this music genre, I suggest you start listening from 04':14" to 05'13" : one short minute on Saint David's life and legend.

An article posted on the BBCnews website (today) :
