Happy Saint David's Day (Wales appreciation thread)

As I'm sure you are all aware, today is March 1st, so that means since I was born a Welshman it's time for HF to honour the patron saint of the greatest country in the world



Wales has by far the GOAT flag



Renowned for its sheep and picturesque countryside, home of dozens of Norman castles



We cannot forget the national sport, rugby, and the many GOAT players who were from Wales. Legendary names such as Gareth Edwards, JJ Williams, JPR Williams, Shane Williams (yes there are a lot called Williams) and many more




And every country needs a one-hit wonder


Wales also the home of great musicians, producing notable bands such as Stereophonics, Lostprophets, Bullet for my Valentine, Feeder. Lets not forget the legendary Tom Jones. Wales also produced great opera singers such as the beautiful Katherine Jenkins, and Charlotte Church (before she sold out and went mainstream)

We cannot forget this epic scene from the movie Zulu when the Welsh regiment sung the Welsh folk song Men of Harlech as they were surrounded by thousands of Zulu warriors



Now could you all please stand, remove your hats, for the singing of the Welsh national anthem.
