    Well spotted Steve. I had one flying at my place a couple of years ago and a Welsh friend asked why I was flying a Scottish flag:Doh: It doesn't get flown much here, they prefer the dragon. But St David does have a striking flag.

    Dave/Phil... Is/Was the Flag of St David the official 'Welsh' flag. Or have they always used the dragon

    The oldest known use of the dragon to represent Wales is from the Historia Brittonum, written around 830,
    The green and white stripes of the flag were additions by the House of Tudor, the Welsh dynasty that held the English throne from 1485 to 1603. Green and white are also the colours of the leek, another national emblem of Wales.

    The Flag of Saint David, a yellow cross on a black field, is used in the emblem of the Diocese of St David's and is flown during St. David's Day,


    it was very much a religious emblem only, as far as i can tell
