In fact, there are no legally approved national emblem – it takes the role of the Royal sign of Wales, which since 2008 is the official heraldic symbol. This distinctive emblem is used by Welsh National Assembly for the approval of legislative acts. The Royal badge of the Principality consists of a shield, divided into fields, each of which goes the lion, with blue claws and tongue; two lions are on the gold fields, two – on red. The shield itself was the personal arms of Llywelyn the Great, who was perceived by his descendants as one of the main symbols of heraldry of Wales. The shield is surrounded by a garter with the green line from the national anthem of Wales – a kind of motto of the Principality: "I am loyal to my country". Green ribbon is surrounded by a wreath of symbolic plants, each of which is Autonomous state within the UK: leek (Wales), the Shamrock (Ireland), Thistle (Scotland) and double rose of the Tudors (England) Coat Of Arms Of Wales
The land of my fathers is dear unto me, Old land where the minstrels are honored and free; Its warring defenders so gallant and brave, For freedom their life’s blood they gave. Home, home, true am I to home While seas secure the land so pure O may the old language endure. Old land of the mountains, the Eden of bards Each gorge and each valley a loveliness guards Through love of my country, charmed voices will be Its streams, and its rivers, to me. Home, home, true am I to home While seas secure the land so pure O may the old language endure. Though foemen have trampled my land 'neath their feet The language of Cambria still knows no retreat The muse is not vanquished by traitor’s fell hand Nor silenced the harp of my land. Home, home, true am I to home While seas secure the land so pure O may the old language endure. Перевод и оригинал - akyla.net/teksty-pesen-na-anglijskom-jazyke/raz...
The dragon in the pictures of the state symbols is used in Britain, and, in particular, in Wales, from time immemorial. The modern flag of Wales is a flag, painted white and green, which depicts a red dragon. Although legally this flag was adopted in 1959, the red dragon was directly associated with Wales during the Roman Empire. Green and white also are associated with Wales since the middle Ages, because even in the reign of Henry VIII Tudor, all troops, who spoke under the auspices of Wales, were dressed in white-green color. In 1807 the Royal flag looked like a red dragon on a green hill and a white field; in 1953 the "neighborhood" were changed to white and the green field with the same dragon and a shield, surmounted by a crown, and in 1959 the Welsh flag acquired its present appearance.

Its fragments were embedded in the walls of Cardiff castle during its construction, which began in 1901.
