The first pack includes colouring templates of the; FAW Dragon Emblem, National Team Badge, ‘Gorau Chwarae Cyd Chwarae’ scroll, Cymru National Team Shirt in addition to a special ‘Together We Are Stronger’ rainbow design. 

The FAW has had the pleasure of witnessing the fantastic rainbow designs from children across the country. This movement, affectionately known as ‘The Rainbow Trail’ encourages children abiding by the social distancing requirements, to display images of rainbows in the windows of their home for the public to view on their daily walks. 

With many people required to self-isolate and everyone being asked to adhere to social distancing measures, colouring can provide a mindfulness activity for both children and adults staying at home. 

The FAW is encouraging both children and adults to share their colourful FAW designs with the #CymruRainbowTrail hashtag across Twitter and Facebook.
