From its metropolitan cities and small market towns, across its mountains and idyllic beaches. Wales offers a unique and vibrant culture steeped in its 3,000 year old history. The dragon on its flag is the perfect symbol of its original thinking: bold and imaginative. It is the only country in the world to be entering the third millennium with the same symbol on its national flag that it had when it entered the second millennium.
