This welsh festival celebrates a historic battle against the Saxons. The story tells of Welsh soldiers losing the battle until a Monk noted the need to distinguish the Welsh from the Saxons.
The monk, David, picked up a leek from the ground and told the Welsh soldiers to wear one in their helmets. Now all the Welsh soldiers were marked with a leek, they were able to defeat the Saxons. When the Monk died on March 1st, the church made him a saint and the leek became the Welsh symbol.
