  3. Cardiff International Airport Cardiff International Airport is the only large and international airportin Wales, offering links domestically and to European and North American destinations, located some 12 miles (19 km) south-west of Cardiff city centre, in the Vale of Glamorgan.

  4. Culture • Wales has a distinctive culture including its own language, customs, holidays and music. • Wales is primarily represented by the symbol of the red Welsh Dragon, but other national emblems include the leek and daffodil. The Welsh words for leeks (cennin) and daffodils (cenninPedr, lit. "(Saint) Peter's Leeks") are closely related and it is likely that one of the symbols came to be used due to a misunderstanding for the other one, though it is less clear which came first. • In June 2008, Wales made history by becoming the first nation in the world to be awarded Fairtrade Status.

  5. Economy • Parts of Wales have been heavily industrialised since the 18th century and the early Industrial Revolution. Coal, copper, iron, silver, lead, and gold have been extensively mined in Wales, andslate has been quarried. By the second half of the 19th century, mining and metallury had come to dominate the Welsh economy, transforming the landscape and society in the industrial districts of south and north-east Wales.

  7. F L A G Flag of Wales is the image of a red dragon on a white and green background. The legislation passed in 1959, although the red dragon was the symbol of Wales since the dawn (from the popular belief, Roman) times. In the Middle Ages (with the Tudor dynasty), white and green colors are also associated with Wales. This is the only one of the flags of the United Kingdom, not included in its flag, which caused some criticism.

  8. Emblem Coat of arms of Wales - the emblem used by the Prince of Wales.

Before the conquest of Wales by the British fragmented kingdoms of Wales used different symbols.
