St. David's Day 2024

St. David's Day: The Flag of Wales

Saint David's Day is celebrated on 1st March each year

St. David's Day is Wales' national day. It is the day that the patron saint of Wales, Saint David, is celebrated.

St. David contrasts with other national Patron Saints such as England's St. George, in that quite a lot is known about his life. He was renowned as a teacher and preacher, founding monastic settlements in both Britain and Brittany.

Traditional celebrations for St. David's Day include concerts (eisteddfodau), with recitations and singing, and the wearing of one or both of the national emblems of Wales on the lapel to celebrate Saint David: the daffodil or the leek which is Saint David's personal symbol.

More modern celebrations include the St David's Day Parade which is held around the streets of Cardiff each year.
