  1. Here is some background info from Mab Jones about(M)other Tongue: It's is a play on the imagery of the Welsh flag (a red dragon on a green and white background) as well as a question on the topic of Welshness and language. I am Welsh, but do not speak the native tongue - in fact, I am in the majority with this. However, some Welsh-speakers look down upon non-Welsh speakers for this reason. I am proud to be Welsh and to speak English - hence the dragon being made up of every letter from the English alphabet. The grass of the flag is made up of the word "gwlad", meaning "homeland".
