WRU Change your logo to the Welsh Dragon

I would like to see the three feathers dropped from the team shirts, merchandise and website as it does not represent the Native country, it does however represent a history that we would rather forget.

Fyswn i yn hoffi weld y tair pluen i ael ei ollwng o'r crysau tîm, farsiandïaeth a'r wefan am fod nid yw'n gynrychioli'r wlad Brodorol , Mae o beth bynnag yn cynrychioli hanes a fysa ni well i anghofio .

Why is this important?

The reason removing the three feathers is important is because it's traced back to Edward the Black Prince; oldest son and heir to Edward III of England and therefore no connection to the native land. Having the feathers is a statement of English oppression and ownership - I find it offensive that it's being used instead of daffodils, leeks, the Red dragon or the Saint David's cross.

Y rheswm mae'n bwysig cael gwared o'r tair pluen yw oherwydd ei fod yn olrhain yn ôl i Edward y Tywysog Du ; mab hynaf ac aer i Edward y trydydd o Loegr ac felly tydi o ddim yn cysylltu efo'r wlad enedigol . Mae cael y tair pluen yn ddatganiad o ormes a pherchnogaeth Saeson - Dwi'n gweld hi'n sarhaus i ei ddefnyddio yn lle gennin Pedr, cennin, y ddraig Goch neu y groes Dewi Sant .

How it will be delivered

I will deliver them in person or get a representative to deliver them in my place if I am unable to do so myself.

Mi wna'i anfon nhw mewn person neu cael rywun sydd yn fy nghynrychioli os fedrai ddim mynd fy hun.

Reasons for signing

  • because it is great
  • The first Welsh jerseys carried the leek, similarly to orher countries who proudly display shamrocks, red roses, silver ferns or thistles. Ingratiating themselves to the British establishment has always been a top priority for the WRU hierarchy and so ditching the leek for the Prince of Wales feathers was a natural step. Hopefully we can now show the world that we have matured enough as a nation to be able to drop this symbol of subservience.
