The National flag of Wales, the Welsh Dragon or Y Draig Goch is recognisable by all Welshmen or women, worldwide. Many national flags are merely an arrangement of colours - the Wales National flag image is one of a confident, fiery Welsh dragon – Y Ddraig Goch or the Welsh dragon flag!
The flag of Wales has consistently been judged as one of the most iconic and striking flags in the world. In 2021 in a worldwide poll, Y Ddraig Goch, or the Red Dragon flag, beat Scotland's white cross on blue background, by a margin of 1,401 votes. The two Celtic nations had fended off a 256 strong field, in the knock-out vote competition, to battle it out for the title.
