What is the Anthem of Wales?


Welsh flag

The Welsh National Anthem is Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau (Land of my Fathers). It was written by Evan James in 1856.

Land of my Fathers

The land of my fathers is dear unto me,
Old land where the minstrels are honoured and free:
Its warring defenders, so gallant and brave,
For freedom their life's blood they gave.
Land, Land, true am I to my Land,
While seas secure this land so pure,
O may our old language endure

Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau

Mae hen wlad fy nhadau yn annwyl i mi,
Gwlad beirdd a chantorion, enwogion o fri;
Ei gwrol ryfelwyr, gwladgarwyr tra mad, 
Tros ryddid collasant eu gwaed. 
Gwlad, gwlad, pleidiol wyf i'm gwlad,
Tra mor yn fur i'r bur hoffbau,
O bydded i'r heniaith barhau.
