So no Wales then?
|Union Rag. Share via twitter | facebook|
The current design for the Union Rag was drawn up in 1801, which is 55 years after the Wales and Berwick Act of 1746. This act created a statutory definition of England as including England, Wales and Berwick-upon-Tweed. No disrespect to the people of Berwick-upon-Tweed but the idea that the nation of Wales should be reduced to the same level as a small border town is as derisory as the notion that we are just a region of England.

The truth is this, the Union Rag represents the Wales that was conquered, colonised, annexed and subjugated for centuries, it represents Wales as a region of England. So if you are one of those so called Welsh people that likes the Union Rag then at least fly it knowing that you are a spineless, sycophantic traitor.
Personally I'll stick to the dragon, a symbol that has represented Wales for over a thousand years.
