Ceredigion

Ceredigion is traditionally an agricultural county bounded on the West by the coastline of Cardigan Bay and boasting the second highest mountain in Wales, Cader Idris. There are two universities in the county at Aberystwyth and Lampeter, the latter being the third oldest university in England and Wales, after Oxford and Cambridge. Aberystwyth is also home to the National Library.

We have three Guiding districts named after the local rivers of Ystwyth, Aeron and Teifi. There are 500 members of Girlguiding in the county, in units for Rainbows, Brownies, Guides and Senior Section.

Girlguiding Ceredigion Standard

The section of the banner representing the county coat of arms shows:

A lion rampant based on the arms of Gwaithfoed, a medieval prince of Ceredigion.

A herring signifying the county fishing industry.

A wheatsheaf representing agriculture

A chevron between 3 roses, arms ascribed to Dewi Sant the patron saint of Wales who had close associations with the county.

The county’s motto means “A country’s wealth is its freedom”.
