Clwyd

County Standard

The standard includes:

The world trefoil to show that we are members of WAGGGS.

The Fly is divided into green and white – the green representing the outdoors.

The motto of the GGA “Be prepared” is written on one side in English and the other side in Welsh.

The Red Dragon – the emblem of Wales.

The lozenge contains the Denbighshire Lion and a Flintshire Chough (a bird).

The lozenge shows we are a female organisation, the lion and the chough are heraldic items from the Coats of Arms of the old counties.

The castle is the monument on Moel Fammau representing the old boundary of the two counties and is also the highest point of the new county representing the highest ideals of Guiding.

The blue and yellow border being the traditional colours of the GGA.

The Girlguiding county of Clwyd can be found in North Wales. It extends from the Welsh/ English Border to the East of Wales some 50 miles to the West Coast of the Principality. It extends as far south as the town of Corwen. Clwyd came into existence in 1974. It was formed at the time of local government re-organisation when the old counties of Denbighshire and Flintshire were amalgamated. It still remains as Clwyd although local government has re-organised and the political county of Clwyd was divided into the three counties of Denbighshire, Flintshire and Wrexham. Girlguiding Clwyd now spans these three counties.

The County has:

  • 42 Rainbow Units
  • 82 Brownie Units
  • 50 Guide Units
  • With 3092 members
The County has its own centre “Ty-Clwyd”, situated in the countryside, close to Abergele. The land was bought eleven years ago mostly through fund raising events organised within the County. The centre was opened by H.R.H. Princess Margaret before any building had taken place. Since then the location has been developed and now has four large campsites and a bungalow style house. The house has been extended and is now able to sleep 24 young people plus their leaders.
