Hello Ms Perkins,


Thank you for your comment. We have unearthed the following explanation for why this song is sometimes referred to as the 'unofficial' Welsh national anthem: "[Mae hen wlad fy nhadau is] the unofficial Welsh anthem by tradition, since 1905. It has not been established as a national anthem by law, but it has been used as a national anthem at official governmental ceremonies". We hope this helps!

Hen Wlad fy Nhadau is the Welsh National Anthem. Is there any reason why your description states it is just considered to be the anthem?
