Saint David's Day
Dafodil in holday cottage garden flowers in time for St David's Day, patron saint of Wales.
St David is the patron saint of Wales. March 1 is a day of celebration of both St David’s life and of the Welsh culture in Wales. The first day of March was chosen in remembrance of the death of Saint David. Tradition holds that he died on that day in 569.
Many people attend special church services, parades, choral recitals or Welsh literature readings. Schools plan celebrations, often involving choirs, on the day.
The Welsh flag, a red dragon on a white and green background, is displayed prominently and a festive mood prevails. Children, particularly girls, and some adults wear traditional costume.
Other people may pin a daffodil or a leek to their clothes as these are symbols of Wales. The traditional meal on St David's Day is cawl. This is a soup that is made of leek and other locally grown produce.
The Flag of Saint David is a golden cross on a black background.
