At the top of the list of 50 flowers and herbs (and some weeds) is the National flower of Wales, the daffodil which is traditionally worn on St. David’s Day. The vegetable called a leek is also considered to be a traditional emblem of Wales.
There are many explanations of how the leek came to be adopted as the national emblem of Wales. One is that St David advised the Welsh, on the eve of battle with the Saxons, to wear leeks in their caps to distinguish friend from foe. As Shakespeare records in Henry V, the Welsh archers wore leeks at the battle of Agincourt in 1415.
