On the 25th of September 1975, Prince Roy Bates proclaimed the Constitution of the Principality of Sealand. Over time, other national treasures were developed, such as it’s national anthem, stamps, as well as gold and silver coins, minted as Sealand dollars. Principality of Sealand passports were produced and issued to many of those who have contributed to the formation and continuation of the Principality.
Today Sealand this Micronation brings together a thriving community from all over the world who unite through a shared philosophy of freedom, self-determination and adventure. To help grow the community, we proudly offer Sealand’s Noble Title initiative. This is an open invitation to all persons of the world who share our beliefs to join our community and formally show their support in a meaningful and enjoyable way. This initiative also greatly benefits the ongoing maintenance and regeneration efforts on our fortress home, as well as helping to safeguard what is a true bastion of freedom for future generations. For almost sixty years, the Principality of Sealand has been forging a vibrant and dynamic culture which has captured the imagination of people all over the world.
Today, part of this culture has been born out of our national sports teams. Today, Sealand competes internationally in an ever-growing number of sports. We are proudly represented by two American Football teams, the men’s Sealand ‘Seahawks’ and ladies Sealand ‘She-Hawks’. In the summertime, we host a gruelling open water charity swim event from Sealand to the UK, which grows in popularity by the year. In true Sealand adventuring spirit, our mountaineering team have so far taken Sealand’s flag to the summit of 4 of the 7 highest peaks, including Mount Everest. We also have teams competing under the Sealand flag in curling, Ice Hockey, Long distance running.
In recent times we have focused our efforts on embracing new and innovative concepts towards governance by exploring how Web3 technologies, such as blockchain, can create a more transparent and decentralized government. Leveraging these cutting-edge tools offers Sealand an opportunity to improve our ability to represent and serve our community, empowering individuals to participate more actively in the decision-making process. This has the potential to position Sealand as a pioneer of new, fairer and more open governance, which we hope will help promote greater freedoms throughout the world. We have achieved the status of being one of the most environmentally friendly countries on earth. 99.9% of our electricity is from renewables, using a combination of wind turbines and solar panels. Our entire fresh water supply is harvested from rainfall, which is plentiful in the Principality.

Beth Haslam, best selling author of Fat Dogs & French Estates. Beth Haslam was brought up on an estate in Wales. Deep in the countryside, her childhood was spent either on horseback, helping the gamekeepers raise pheasants, or out sailing.
A serious car crash back in 1991 ended Beth’s full time career, so she set up her own Human Resources consultancy business. As semi-retirement beckoned, Beth and her husband Jack decided to buy a second home in France. This has become a life-changing event where computers and mobile phones have swapped places understanding French customs, and wrestling with the local dialect. Beth is now occupied as never before. Raising and saving animals, writing, and embracing that rural France has to offer. Fantastic to support both Fly 2 Wales and Discover Wales on their promotion of my homeland across the world.
The Wine Society of Wales was founded in June 2022, this is, naturally, a young society as wine circles go. That said the team is passionate in all ‘things’ food and wines, and we are lucky enough to have been able to include within the team some notable wine buffs, and specialists, both professional and amateur.
The Wine Society of Wales is jointly owned by Spanish food professional Gabriel Fernandez Gomez, (Gabi) proprietor of The Fat Toro, Wine & Pintxos Bar in Walter Road, Swansea and Food & Drink Consultant (and owner of Taste Swansea & West Wales Food Magazine,) Steve Homer who has in recent years returned from living abroad for many years where he was involved in food and drink business.
An informal discussion over an impromptu al fresco lunch in the garden, punctuated by wine of course, led to the idea of forming the Wine Society with the intention to cover a multitude of objectives (in no particular order):
- Educate those willing parties who would like to know more about wine, including organising courses resulting in professional qualifications. (Of course, we bring in professionals to do this!)
- Arrange and conduct wine and food tours abroad, particularly within Europe and share best practices amongst the wine growers in the respective countries.
- Organise wine (and food tours) to those vineyards and food producers within Wales which allow tours.
- Organise and conduct Wine Tasting events, Wine & Food Matching events and other wine-based events by teaming up with like-minded restaurant/bar venues throughout Wales.
- Increase Welsh Tourism through wine, and where desired, help Welsh wine producers reach a bigger audience. We are proud to be Business Supporters of Fly 2 Wales & also Discover Wales on their promotion of Wales internationally for both tourism and trade.
Since 2019, the Magyar Cymru Network has been the backbone of Welsh-Hungarian cultural relations, uniting people from all walks of life to foster their knowledge and appreciation of our shared cultural heritage.

The Network delivers high-impact Welsh-Hungarian cultural projects and showcases the best of both nations through fruitful collaboration with a range of partners and friends. Based in the UK, Hungarian-born PR consultant Balint Brunner is the Founder of Magyar Cymru and the organiser of Wales Week Hungary. Balint’s ‘Let’s Build Bridges’ campaign, seen by thousands across Wales and Hungary, has been featured on the likes of BBC News, ITV Wales and Hungarian national television M5. His ‘grassroots’ public diplomacy model – centred around no-budget Welsh-Hungarian activations delivered in a volunteer capacity – has piqued the interest of embassies, cultural organisations and the Welsh Government. An avid Welsh learner, Balint also advocates better Welsh-language integration for immigrants in Wales, and was nominated as a Shwmae Su’mae Day ambassador in 2020. We are proud to be Business Supporters of Fly 2 Wales & also Discover Wales on their promotion of Wales across the world for tourism.
