Virginia Crosbie MP proud to wear Ynys Môn flag face mask in House of Commons

Ynys Môn MP Virginia Crosbie unveiled her new Anglesey flag face mask in parliament today at the first Welsh Questions of the new year.

Virginia then went on to wear the mask at Prime Minister’s Questions.

It is thought to be the first time the island’s flag has been on show in the House of Commons.

“I was very proud to wear this face mask and put the beautiful flag of our beautiful island on show in the House of Commons,” said Virginia.

“I received quite a few compliments about it too and I will be wearing it while it is advised to do so.

“I am honoured to be the MP for Ynys Môn and a Parliamentary Private Secretary (PPS) at the Welsh Office. 

“I will continue to raise the profile of Anglesey and Wales any way I can so it can benefit from even more investment and job creation as we recover from the pandemic.” 

According to the Flag Institute website, the Anglesey flag originates from the 15th century.

The design derives from arms attributed by mediæval heralds to the celebrated local 12th century ruler, Hwfa ap Cynddelw from the Presaddfed Estate, near Bodedern.
