Happy St David's Day from Google

Google Doodles are becoming so frequent now that it's becoming increasingly difficult to keep up with the creative offerings.

In the past four days there have been six different doodles around the world - for the likes of Dominican Republic Independence Day and Kuwait National Day - but this effort is much more close to home.

Especially if your home is Wales. Yep, that's right, it's 1 March and that can only mean one thing - it's Saint David's Day.

The Welsh Patron saint has the 1,422nd anniversary of his death marked in a simple way by the search giant - the second G is decorated in the form of somebody wearing a shawl and a welsh hat, and a daffodil on board too, of course.

Saint David was a scion of Ceredigion, and founded a Celtic monastic community at Glyn Rhosin on the western headland of Sir Benfro, at the spot where St David's Cathedral stands today.

His final words to his tearful community of monks were: "Brothers be ye constant. The yoke which with single mind ye have taken, bear ye to the end; and whatsoever ye have seen with me and heard, keep and fulfil."

Probably made perfect sense at the time....
