A group of Christians say Wales's national flag is "demonic" and should be changed.
The Welsh Christian Party claims the red dragon on the nation's standard is at odds with the country's position as a Christian nation. It wants the flag to be replaced with the black and gold cross of St David.
The history of the flag is somewhat obscure, though it seems to have emerged at the beginning of the 20th century. One theory is that it was developed to fly atop Anglican churches in Wales, in the same way that the St George's Cross was flown outside churches in England, though since 1954 churches are more likely to fly a flag bearing the armorial bearings of the Church in Wales, granted that year.

OK, update, apparently this came out back in 2007 and it was dumped. It's old news that has been mistakenly resurrected. However I am still curious about the St David flag. I can honestly say I have never seen it fly anywhere like you do with the St George, St Andrew or Kernow flags.

If you go to St Davids, the actual place, with the cathedral and such (which is bloody GORGEOUS by the way) you will see the flag, or flags inspired by it, next to bloody everywhere, or rather, that was how it was last time I was down that way.
