St. David's Day is celebrated in Wales on March 1st, in honor of Saint David. Saint David was a Welsh bishop of Menevia during the 6th century. He was later regarded as a saint and as the patron saint of Wales because of the spreading of the word of Christianity across Wales.
The national flower of Wales is the daffodil, which is often worn on St. David's Day. The vegetable called leek is also considered to be a traditional emblem of Wales.
Another person is Sir George Everest. He is a famous traveler and explorer, and the highest peak in the world is named after him.
