We just learned about the country of Slovenia

Let's learn a little about the country of Wales!

Just like Ireland, England and Scotland, this is a country that is a part of the United Kingdom.

Wales is part of the same island as England and Scotland, just west of where England is.
It is only about 8,000 square miles, but has over 3 million people living there.

The flag of Wales is white and green, with a red dragon on it.
There are ancient stories about a dragon that lived in Wales, and is buried under one of the big hills in the country.
