The lowly leek, which resembles a scallion on steroids, is a national emblem of Wales. Did you know that on March 1, St. David's Day, patriotic Welsh and those of Welsh descent wear a leek on their clothing? (I'm guessing not a REAL one but a pin??) Also, it is tradition that soldiers in the Welsh regiments eat a raw leek on St David's Day. Posted for ZWT II.
