Clogau Welsh Dragon Signet Ring from the Welsh Heritage collection Aur Cymru (‘Welsh Gold’).
The Clogau team take their inspiration for this collection from a famous symbol of Wales, the Welsh Dragon.
The proud and ancient battle standard of the Welsh is The Red Dragon (Y Ddraig Goch) and consists of a red dragon, passant (standing with one foot raised), on a green and white background. The Welsh people carry the red dragon as a symbol of pride in their history and culture.
The Welsh dragon is also the national flag of Wales and officially came into being in 1959, although the red dragon as an emblem has been used in Wales since the reign of Cadwaladr (Cadwallader), King of Gwynedd from around 655AD. Y Ddraig Goch flies proudly over public and private buildings throughout Wales.
