A 55ft Draig Goch ‘bigger than a double decker bus’ proudly flies over the Welsh/England border to celebrate Wales qualifying for the World Cup. The gigantic flag is believed to be the largest flying in Wales.
The nation celebrated on Sunday after Robert Page’s Welsh side secured their place at the 2022 World Cup with victory over Ukraine. It will be Wales’ first participation in a World Cup since 1958.
The flag is located at Dandy’s Topsoil Ltd on the A548 Sealand Road in Chester. It can be seen on both sides of the border, which is only a few meters away.

Wales fan Adam Dandy of Dandy’s Topsoil is the man behind the idea to fly the flag. He revealed how it happened.
He said: “We are located on the border of Wales and England, with our offices in Wales. We were disappointed to only have a small Welcome to Wales sign on the road. and we thought we should welcome visitors to Wales with the largest flying flag in the country.
