~Name: Wales, ~Name pronounciation: W-ay-l-s, ~Location: Western Europe, ~Belonging to: The United Kingdom, ~Capital: Cardiff, ~Colors: White, green, red, black, ~Meaning: The flag incorporates the red dragon of Cadwaladr, King of Gwynedd, along with the Tudor colours of green and white. It was used by Henry VII at the Battle of Bosworth in 1485, after which it was carried in state to St Paul's Cathedral. The red dragon was then included as a supporter of the Tudor royal arms to signify their Welsh descent. It was officially recognised as the Welsh national flag in 1959, ~Head of state: Charles, Prince of Wales, ~Reason for separation: (Doesn't want independence), ~Interesting fact(s): There is a town and train station in northern Wales called "Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantyssiliogogogoch"! Also Mount Everest was named after Welshman Sir George Everest from Gwernvale, Breconshire! And Welshman Robert Recorde of Pembrokeshire invented the “equal to” sign! And last but not least, the population of sheep in Wales is four times greater than the Welsh population of humans! ~Bordering countries: *England (United Kingdom), ~Language(s): English, Welsh, ~Major religion: Christianity, ~My opinion: I really want to go to Wales! #countries#flags#vexillology#world#geography#history#culture#facts#unofficial#territory#llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantyssiliogogogoch
Another S commission, this time in Small - first one in this size. . Within the parameters of a pattern, my process is very organic. I usually have an idea in mind but never know exactly how it will turn out until it’s done. I’m inspired and directed by materials and mood; these mixed neutrals lately have hit me right in the gut. Some pieces are harder to let go of than others and this one is proving that true. I hope your owner loves you. . Each piece is handcrafted & one-of-a-kind. All nautical commissions are available through @laa_artcollective.
