Welsh Leek Pin Brooch Sterling Silver or Gold Plated

$70.00


Beautifully handcrafted leek sterling silver or gold plated pin brooch is the perfect everyday accessory.

The Leek is the national symbol of Wales.

Wales has longstanding association with the leek. It isn't 100 percent clear how the nation took up the vegetable. If you believe legends, this is another thing that can be laid at the feet of King Cadwaladr of Gwynedd, who supposedly ordered his soldiers to identify themselves by attaching leeks to their armor. Whatever the causes, the Tudors spread the association far and wide when they had their guards wear leeks on St. David's Day. Something that suggests Wales was already associated with the vegetable in those days because the Tudors had Welsh origins.
