Text of Petition             

​We call on the National Assembly for Wales to urge the Welsh Government to refer to our country as Cymru, and the nation as Cymry, in Welsh and English in all official statements. The origins of the terms "Wales" and "Welsh" refer to us as foreigners and vassals in our own country. It is time for us to define ourselves rather than being defined by another nation – and a symbol of this would be to refer to ourselves as Cymry and our country as Cymru.
