Welsh Dragon weathervanes In 1959 the Queen made the Red Dragon on a green and white background, the official Welsh flag. This weathervane is a perfect gift for anyone who is Welsh or anyone who wished they were. Dragons are fantasy creatures. They have the body of a lion, the head and sometimes the wings of an Eagle. Most griffins are depicted with fore legs like an eagle’s legs with talons while it has the hind quarters of a lion.
Y Draig Goch, The Red Dragon of Wales is the symbol of Resurgent Wales. The English word “Dragon” and the “Welsh” word “Draig” both come from the same Latin root “draco” for standard. So the Red Dragon is the standard for Wales “The Land of Red Dragons’
Made of Stainless Steel these Welsh Dragon weathervanes will give years and years of enjoyment and service.

Which one to use ?
Which one ?
Gable Bracket (Stainless Steel) is used for attaching to the face of the Gable. Suitable for both Tile and Metal Roofs. Because the shaft extends down the face of the Gable, it is 200mm longer than the ridge line bracket.
Stainless Steel Mounting Plate (supplied flat with laser cut slots to allow plate to be bent to the exact pitch of the roof). Used on the roof ridge of metal roofs. Also adaptable to flat surfaces and mounting on posts.
No Mounting Bracket when only the Weathervane is required. Purchasing the suitable bracket makes installation easy and enjoyable
