Yes Cymru propose alternative crests for WRU that ditch the three feathers
Yes Cymru have released three new alternative designs for the Welsh Rugby Union – that ditch the Prince of Wales three feathers.
The independence group issued the new designs, which they believe are more ‘Welsh’ as opposed to a symbol of the British monarchy, to gauge feedback from users on social media.

The new designs issued to coincide with today’s match between Wales and the All Blacks in Cardiff, show a leek, a daffodil and a harp.
Yes Cymru said: “These are some initial ideas and we’ve asked for suggestions for a new motto. Good to know what people’s opinion’s are on this issue.
Goat, sheep, SuperTed, Mr Urdd
“We’re looking at everyone’s comments and we’ll be producing new designs based on feedback in time for the next game.”
This is what the current WRU crest looks like.
Understandably, there was lots of feedback on social media, with mixed reviews for the designs.
Many suggested a dragon would be an obvious replacement, some backed a goat or a sheep as an alternative to the three feathers, while one person even suggested SuperTed and then there was this…
Definitely worth considering 🤣🏴 https://t.co/MS4RqXOZcU
