…Our national anthem.

The history of the song written by James James and begins as a father and his son Evan James of Pontypridd wrote “The Land Of My Fathers in January of 1856. The popularity of the song arose during the Llangollen Eisteddfod of 1858 and has been sung at sports events continuously.

 

Mae hen wlad fy nhadau yn annwyl i mi,
Gwlad beirdd a chantorion, enwogion o fri;
Ei gwrol ryfelwyr, gwladgarwyr tra mad,
Dros ryddid collasant eu gwaed.

Tra môr yn fur i’r bur hoff bau,
O bydded i’r hen iaith barhau.
