Symbols of Welsh people in Patagonia / Símbolos dos Galeses na Patagónia - seguindo a rota Templária. (Os galeses patagónicos é o nome dado ao povo que se instalou na região da Patagónia Argentina, na América do Sul.)
Y Ddraig Goch (Welsh Dragon). The Romans used the dragon as one of their symbols of power. Into battle they would carry a metal head of a dragon in which they would light a fire. This would burn fiercely in the wind and seems to be where all the legends of fire breathing dragons come from. When the Romans left Britain it seems that the dragon was adopted by others as their symbol of power. Hence the Welsh Dragon of today.
Welsh love spoon, a romantic tradition. when a young man wanted to court a young lady he would carve a spoon to show off his talent and to prove his love. Each symbol on a lovespoon has a different meaning.
Caernarvon is architecturally one of the most impressive of all of the castles in Wales. It's defensive capabilities were not as overt or as powerful as those of Edward I's other castles such as Harlech and Beaumaris (which indicate the pinnacle of castle building and defenses in Britain), but Caernarvon was instead intended as a seat of power - and as a symbol of English dominance over the subdued Welsh.
