Saint David was a Welsh bishop of Mynyw (now St Davids) during the 6th century. David was a native of Wales, and was born sometime between 462 and 512. He is said to have played a role in spreading Christianity on the continent, inspiring numerous place names in Brittany including Saint-Divy, Saint-Yvi and Landivy. Tradition tells us that during a battle against the Anglo-Saxons, David advised the Welsh warriors each to wear a leek in his hat or armour so that the warriors might distinguish themselves from their enemies. Ever since then, the Welsh wear leeks every March 1 in memory of David.
