I hope you have a great day wherever you are this year. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

At a time when things can feel worrying and uncertain, today is an opportunity for us all to come together and celebrate Wales. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

It’s an opportunity for us to show who we are and what we stand for. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

We have a rich history, a vibrant and distinctive culture, and a unique language — Cymraeg. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

We are a land of sport and song. But we’re so much more than that. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
