Cwmwd Ial

Cwmwd Ial's main shield design is a round shield (any size from small to large) featuring either a Cymric wheeled cross or a Cymric zoomorphic design.

CWMWD IAL ROUND SHIELD WITH CYMRIC WHEELED CROSS

Members are free to choose either type as long as the design utilises our group colours of white, yellow, blue & green on a brown field. Members are also permitted to use red in their design as long as it is used sparingly.

For later period Welsh shows (11th century) and shows where we portray Saxons (i.e. Hastings) we also utilise a tear drop kite shield. These tend to have a more standardised version of our Cymric wheeled cross utilising the group colour scheme.

CWMWD IAL TEARDROP KITE SHIELD

Cwmwd Ial as a group also portrays Welsh forces of the later 12th Century. For these shows we utilise a Flat-top kite shield which was the technological successor of the tear drop kite from the previous century. The design on these shields is again more standardised but this time features a yellow and red Cymric cross of a cruciform nature on a brown field.

Northumbria Vikings

As the name suggests Northumbria cover the entire North-East of England in the original Saxon kingdom of the same name. More accurately Northumbria cover the northern half of that territory, originally called Bernicia.

The Northumbria flag was one of the first to be mentioned in written records and our colours are based upon the description :-

"The flag is a mix of the colour of gold and spent blood". (i.e. blue to purple not arterial red)

Northumbrians were Angles pre the Viking settlement of York (C-866), and slowly became Anglo-Danish afterwards.
