Welcome to the Glamorgan History Society website.
more than fifty years, the Glamorgan History Society has played a
prominent and highly respected role in encouraging the study of the
Glamorgan in all its many aspects.
year we publish our journal, Morgannwg, which brings together expertise
from academics and local historians alike. We welcome original,
well-written articles, and the journal provides an excellent
opportunity for researchers to publish their work and bring it to the
attention of a wider readership.

Glamorgan County Flag
The Glamorgan History Society was instrumental in securing the registration of a flag for the historic county
of Glamorgan. In collaboration with the Association of British Counties
and the Historic Counties Trust, a successful approach was made to the
Flag Institute who have registered the proposed design. The design was
also supported by a number of other historical societies in Glamorgan.
The origins of the design form the subject of an article in the 2013
edition of Morgannwg.
