Sealand-based Dandy’s Topsoil, based right on the border between Wales and England, is the proud owner of the enormous Welsh flag. CEO of the company, Adam Dandy, said: “We were disappointed with only having a tiny welcome to Wales sign on the road and after the Welsh lockdown ended, we thought that we should welcome the visitors back to Wales with the biggest flown flag in the country!

“It is 55ft in length and bigger than a double decker bus!” Dandy’s is a family business established in 1826 and its brand ambassador is former Premier League footballer Dion Dublin.
Adam added that Wales’ qualification to their first World Cup since 1958 was the inspiration for hoisting the flag up the pole. PIC: How the flag looks next to your average Dandy’s truck.
He said: “We recently had a large Ukrainian flag up to welcome the refugees coming over to stay locally.
“But, after Wales’ success in gaining a place at the World Cup, we hoisted the huge flag back up.”
