In 2017, Flint Castle was going to have a large art piece installed to commemorate and give context to the construction of the castle and those who built it. However the art piece took the design of an iron ring, a symbol of oppression from the English conquest of Wales. Thankfully through petitions and campaigning, that art piece was scrapped, however it was recently announced that a new piece will be taking its place at Flint Castle, and it will represent the same issues of the first proposed art piece. This art and the insult to Wales and its history should not be built, and it most certainly should not be placed at a castle, a symbol of warfare, and oppression. The Welsh Government need to stop this insane campaign to glorify the English conquest of Wales and actually focus on learning Welsh history. This art piece is costing the Welsh tax payer an estimated £62,500. Maybe the Welsh Government should put that money where it can be used towards more meaningful things, and not a giant circular sculpture outside a castle.
