The Welsh all around the world take pride in marking Saint David’s Day by wearing the traditional dress of Wales or by wearing an emblem such as a daffodil or a leek. Some consider the daffodil to be replacement for the leek and they usually grow in abundance by 1st March. The daffodil is considered to be the national flower of Wales. There are also parades and services held to honour Saint David.
Another national emblem associated with Saint David’s Day is marked on the Welsh flag, the Welsh dragon. The red dragon, or “Y Ddraig Goch” in the native tongue, is a symbol of all things Welsh. Sitting front and centre on the national flag, it has proudly posed as the national animal for thousands of years. But, there is also a flag of Saint David’s, lesser known the Ddraig Goch, it features a black background with a yellow cross on it.

Did you also know that Britain’s smallest city is also named after him? The cathedral led to St. David’s in Pembrokeshire having this title despite its population being only 1,600!
Why not celebrate this special day with a stay at the Trefeddian.  The Bro Dysynni Male Voice Choir will be helping us celebrate Saint David’s Day with a special performance in the evening.  Our fabulous team of chefs will be adding a touch of Welsh flair to the dinner menu which could be accompanied by a bottle of Glyndwr Dry from the oldest established vineyards in Wales.  Complete this special day with a glass of Penderyn Whisky whilst enjoying the choir sing.
So, as the Welsh would say, Dydd Gŵyl Dewi Hapus, Happy Saint David’s Day!
