Welsh Hip FlasksWe sell a small collection of Welsh inspired hip flasks.  These include the famous Welsh Dragon, The Welsh Flag and we have hip flasks that use both the words Wales and Cymru.

The Welsh Dragon
The Welsh Dragon – Welsh: Y Ddraig Goch (“the red dragon”)– appears in bold red on the national flag of Wales. The flag as it happens is Welsh Hip Flasksalso called Y Ddraig Goch. The Historia Brittonum which was written around AD 829 this contains the oldest recorded use of the red dragon to symbolise Wales, however the popular story of its use is based around it being the battle of standard of King Arthur as well as other ancient Celtic leaders.
The Welsh see the red dragon as symbolising all things Welsh, and so this wonderful image is used all over Wales by many public and private institutions.

Wales
Wales can be found in the West of the United Kingdom it is a country that borders England in the East, in particular Herefordshire, Shropshire and Cheshire. The Irish Sea can be found to its north and west, and to the South the Bristol Channel.  It is a beautiful country with many area of outstanding natural beauty, Snowdonia national park is probably the most famous as it holds the highest mountain in Wales as well as the highest mountain in the British Isles south of Scotland.

The Welsh language has historically been known in English as “the British tongue”, “Cambrian”, “Cambric” and “Cymric”

The Leek
One of the symbols of Wales is the humble leek, it is said that St David advised the Britons to wear leeks in there caps or hats so they could distinguish themselves from their foe the Saxons.  A great victory was won and the leek is now firmly rooted in Welsh history and worn on St Davids day.  We don’t have any ‘leeky’ hip flasks I’m afraid.
