Baner Tywysogaeth Gwynedd oedd baner y Pedwar Llew yn wreiddiol ond yn dilyn cwymp y Dywysogaeth yn 1283, mabwysiadwyd y faner, yn wreiddiol, gan Owain Llaw Goch ac yna gan Owain Glyndŵr. Roedd y ddau yn ddisgynyddion i dywysogion Gwynedd gyda'r hawl i fabwysiadu'r faner. Newidiwyd y llewod i fod yn rhai 'rampiant' gan Owain Llaw Goch ac yna defnyddiwyd y fersiwn yna o'r faner gan Owain Glyndŵr yn ystod ei Rhyfel fawr Dros Annibyniaeth.
O dan y faner yma bu Cymru'n annibynnol o tua 1403 hyd at tua 1410 a gan mai baner Harri Tudur oedd un y ddraig goch ar gefndir gwyrdd a gwyn, wedi ei hatgyfodi yn 1958, rydym, fel gwladgarwyr, ond yn cydnabod baner y Pedwar Llew Rampiant fel gwir faner genedlaethol Cymru a gan fod cynlluniau ar y gweill gan David Cameron a Llywodraeth Lloegr i osod Jac yr Undeb ar drwyddedau gyrru ym Mhrydain, rydym yn mynnu ein hawliau dinesig i gael Pedwar Llew Rampiant Tywysog Owain Glyndŵr ar drwyddedau gyrru yng Nghymru.
The Four Lions Rampant was, originally, the Four Lions Passive flag of The Royal House of Gwynedd in Snowdonia, North Wales. Following the fall of the Royal House of Gwynedd, it was adoped by the rightful heir, the great warrior Prince, Owain Glyndŵr during his war of Independence 1400 - 1421ish and the 'passive lions' were changed into 'rampant lions' to illustrate that the Cymru (Welsh) were up in arms.
Under this flag, Cymru (Wales) was independent between 1403 - 1410ish and, as the red dragon on a green and white background was the standard of Henry Tudor King of England and was only resurrected in 1958, we as Welsh patriots only recognise the Four Lions Rampant as the true flag of Cymru and as plans are being drawn up by David Cameron to have the Union flag or Crest to appear on "British" driving licences, we demand our civil right to have the Four Lion Rampant flag of the Cymric people's Prince, Prince Owain Glyndŵr on Cymric (Welsh) driving licences.
Mae'r Western Mail, papur sy'n honni bod yn bapur cenedlaethol Cymru, wedi sarhau holl bobl Cymru trwy ddweud fod cyfieithu cofnodion y Cynulliad "yn foethusrwydd na allwn ni ei fforddio". Rhaid i'r Western Mail ymddiheuro am y sarhad yma a dangos eu cefnogaeth lwyr i Gymru ddwyieithog.
The Western Mail, a paper claiming to be the National Newspaper of Wales, has insulted the people of Wales by saying that the translation of the written record of the National Assembly is "a luxury we cannot afford". The Western Mail must apologise for this insult and declare its full support for a bi-lingual Wales.
Following the complete occupation of Wales by the Anglo Normans in 1282 - 4 and again, in the 1420's following the War of Independence led by the great Welsh Prince Owain Glyndwr, great areas of Welsh land was either taken by the English Crown or 'given' as rewards to English barons for fighting for England in the Welsh Wars.
Ironically this was repeated by the Tudors in the 16th, who were of 'Welsh Descent', One such example being the Dukes of Somerset being given Mynydd y Gwair and much else throughout Southern Wales. This Mountain is now the centre of a major local issue and national campaign as the Somerset Trust intends to establish a Wind Mill Plantation on it.
Apart from the above, much of Welsh land was common land - which meant that the peasantry had the right to build a smallholding on it as well as hunt and fish but, increasingly over the centuries and up to the present, the Gentry and incoming 'New Conquistadores, such as Iron and Slate Masters began to seize this Common Land by means of Enclosure Acts. The issue of Anglican Church ownership was very much addressed in the Welsh Tithe Wars of 1886 - 88 by a National Land League but there is still much unfinished business to be taken care of.
Today, the aforementioned land is still occupied by the English Crown and the descendents of the English barons and, increasingly, by outside 'Utiliy Companies as in the case of the Vyrnwy Estate, It is being extensively plundered of its natural resources, such as water and timber, and is being savagely destroyed by gigantic windfarms. It is our Welsh herital land and we want it returned to the communities and people of Wales through this Wales Land Act.
Plas Cwrt yn Dre, also known as Owain Glyndwr’s Old Parliament House was moved from Dolgellau to the Dolerw Park, Newtown in 1886.
The Quakers, who currently own it can no longer afford to maintain it and are selling it for £55,000. It is undoubtedly a national treasure and we think it should be purchased by the Welsh Government for the nation.
Ar y we-fan AVON Connects, lle rydw i yn aelod ac hefyd yn gweithio i AVON mae yna lle ar eich proffil i dewis pa iaith hoffech chi siarad. Mae yna pop iaith OND Cymraeg. Rydw i wedi bod mewn cyswllt a AVON dros y wythnos dwethaf yn ofyn yddyn nhw adio Cymraeg at y tab ac hefyd yn rhoi gwybod yddyn nhw fod yna Deddf yr Iaith Cymraeg sydd yn rhoi ein iaith ni ar hawliau cyfartal yn Prydain. Serch hynny mae AVON newydd anfon e-bost atai yn dweud eu fod nhw methu helpu fi rhagor ac eu fod nhw yn WRTHOD newyd yr tab i adio Cymraeg at eu we-fan.
Helpwch fi i ddangos AVON fod Cymraeg yn Iaith Cymru ac yn Iaith swyddogol ym Mrhydain, ac i adio Cymraeg at eu we-fan.
On the AVON connects website, of which I am a Member and also work for AVON, under the preferred spoken language bar in members profile there is no tab for WELSH. I have been in contact with AVON over the last week or so stating that Welsh is an official language in the UK and that there is a Welsh Language Act . However I have recently received an e-mail from there administration team stating that they can NOT help me further and will not add Welsh to the language tab.
Please join me in showing AVON that Welsh is an official language and get them to add it to there language bar.
Swansea City Council is proposing to extinguish the right of way which is still in existence at the site of the former Swansea slipbridge at OystermouthRoad (and thereafter demolish the abutments on which the bridge span was supported.)
This matter has now been referred to The Welsh Assembly for a decision on 22nd June 2010. The bridge has been an important part of Swansea since its completion in 1915 and had been well used, as of need, by the public until the bridge span was removed in 2004. The Council originally stated that such removal was to be for repair and/or reinstatement with a similar span. Such action has never been taken.
The span was removed to Swansea promenade by the Council at a cost of some £308K, where it is now not able to serve its rightful purpose. A Consultation exercise by the Council costing £35K was deliberately ignored as the outcome stated that the bridge should have been put back. It is also a historic landmark in Swansea and has been a focal point for tourists visiting the area due to the wonderful views over Swansea and Mumbles. The Swansea Slip Bridge Civic Society and its supporters are challenging the right of way extinguishment order.
We want the right of way to remain and the bridge reinstated. This bridge provided a safe way to cross a very busy road and we want it reinstated at public expense.
In 1831 Dic Penderyn/Richard Lewis the leader of the Merthyr Uprising was accused, tried, and executed in Cardiff Prison for a crime that he did not commit. He was then buried by the authorities at a secret Welsh location in order to prevent his grave becoming a shrine to the cause of freedom.
We would like to see his body exhumed then reburied in Merthyr Tydfil, the town that loved him.
The Welsh Assembly is increasingly important to secure Wales' identity. It is not a part of England as many would happen to believe.
More powers should be given to the Welsh Assembly to work for Welsh people.
After 20 years, the BBC is proposing to end Wales on Saturday which covers domestic sports results in the principality, including football.
Carmarthenshire County Council is proposing merging Ysgol Y Gwendraeth and Maes Yr Yrfa schools.
We, the undersigned, back the 2B option. We believe a Category 2B school offers pupils in the area an opportunity for a TRULY BILINGUAL education.
A Category 2B school means that school pupils get a CHOICE of Welsh OR English for their education. The other options presented by the Council only cater to those wanting a Welsh-medium education.
The options offered by the council are as follows:
1. A Category 2A school on two sites. [80% of subjects must be through Welsh, meaning that science and maths may be offered in English as well as Welsh.]
2. A Category 1 school on two sites. [This means no English except in English lessons.]
3. A Category 1 OR 2A school pupils on one site.
AS OF FEBRUARY 25TH: A 4th option is offered - a category 2B school on 2 sites. This would mean at least 80% of subjects (excluding Welsh and English) are taught through the medium of Welsh but are also taught through the medium of English. We believe this is the only sensible option for the Gwendraeth Valley.
11. Arise Sir Shaky
Shakin’ Stevens is a musical legend and national treasure who deserves to be honoured and commemorated as thus.
The biggest selling male solo artist of the 1980s, he has entertained music lovers all over the world with his prolific recordings and live performances, not just in the 80s but in a career now spanning over 40 years.
Not many people realise that he paid his dues many times over by tirelessly recording and touring across the UK and Europe throughout the late 60s and 70s before finally getting his break.
His achievements include thirty consecutive UK Top 30 hits in a decade, and four singles in the German chart simultaneously, feats which to this day remain unsurpassed by any other artist.
Only this year he was invited to perform at the iconic Glastonbury Festival where he succeeded in drawing the biggest crowd for an opening artist on the Pyramid Stage, proving that he is still very much in the hearts of the music-loving public across the generations.
As such a successful ambassador for British music, he deserves at least some sort of official recognition for his services.
Arise, Sir Shaky!
The advantages of summer football.
Warm Weather is so much better for spectators and players. It is much better to play and support in the sun and the dry , nicer than standing in gale force winds and lashing rain.
Light nights mean more midweek matches which are better supported. No more postponed matches due to waterlogged or frozen pitches. The pitches would be flat and have a better playing surface. Much better than playing in mud baths. Safer travelling for fans due to lighter evening.
The English game is killing Welsh soccer and when games in local soccer kick off on a Saturday in Wales , Sky TV is in the middle of showing a live game involving one of the big four.
Clubs qualifying for European football would be better prepared for their matches. Other European Countries have the advantage due to their season being in full swing while most of our players are away.
Our neighbours The Republic of Ireland have summer soccer so it should not be a problem for Wales to follow their blueprint.
We should start in March and finish in November - leaving the sleet, high winds, driving rain behind forever.
Finding places for training in the height of winter is difficult and expensive for clubs. Most teams would not consider training in the winter months when the weather is at its worst.
These are just a few advantages and reasons why soccer in Wales should be moved to the summer. If you agree with me, then please add our name to the petition. Also add a comment on why Wales should be a summer soccer country!

As a counter measure to the request by 40 Dragons Fans to make the Region the Newport Black and Ambers and provide Newport regional stand alone status.
We, the undersigned, would like to propose a counter measure of the Gwent Dragons actually retaining their title and becoming a real Welsh region with a balanced board of directors containing members of all of the regions member clubs, covering Gwent and the dis-enfranchised region containing Pontypridd and Brigend RFC.
This team will play at a neutral venue and seek to court the support of all regional member clubs. Current Head Coach, Paul Turner, is to remain in charge with the current squad. A new benefactor is to be sought by the new board of directors, and a proposal is to be generated for the development of sports facilities for the region at a central and neutral location, on main transport access routes, for all sports, with a stadium and running track.
This proposal is to be submitted to the Welsh Parliament and National Lottery for funding support, amongst other sources.
The on line link to the original proposal is identified below.
The .cw Campaign is calling for a Country Code Top Level Domain (ccTLD) to be created for Wales on the Internet.
What this would mean is that Welsh e-mail, WWW, FTP addresses could be assigned a two letter country code suffix signifying Wales. Many of the obvious choices have already been taken by other countries, we therefore suggest .cw (c representing Cymru & w representing Wales). Currently Welsh addresses end in .uk or one of the general international suffices such as .net, .com or .org. Welsh businesses in particular, rather than having a Welsh address are forced to use either a .uk version, or an international one which might already be in use by a different company elsewhere in the world
We are campaigning on several fronts. Most notably we are lobbying:
* The UK Parliament
* The National Assembly of Wales
* ICANN (Internet Corporation For Assigned Names and Numbers)
*ISO (International Organization for Standardization)
* BSI (British Standards Institute)
* The United Nations
The reasons why we have chosen the above targets is listed here - http://www.cw.rhwyd.org/ymgyrch.htm
