Welsh dragon brooch

Pewter Welsh dragon brooch with embossed detail. Secures to a garment by way of a pin with locking, safety catch.

The official emblem of Wales, the red dragon (y ddraigg goch), although perhaps of Chinese origin, was introduced to Britain by the Romans some 1800 years ago. Initially a military standard, over time this mythical beast developed into the flag of the nation. Henry VII claimed descent fron Cadwaladar, the great Welsh king, traditionally called the last king of Britain whose dragon symbol, redolent of bravery and fierceness, had been taken up by later Welsh princes.
