The Ancient Celts created a race and a culture that still influence our modern day political systems. The Celtic nations (Cornwall, Brittany, Isle of Man, Wales, Ireland and Scotland) created the Celtic League to foster unity, to strengthen the use of the Celtic language and ultimately, to preserve the great culture of the Celts.
The Celtic League was founded to unite and to build camaraderie among the six nations of the Celticity. They worked together to create power and stability in terms of world politics. It also aimed at building a social circle within the Celtic nations and work together to achieve economic stability for each and every citizen.
The Celtic League was founded in 1961 as a lot of political organizations emerged from the rise of Pan-Celticism. Hugh MacDiramid, was one of the notable individuals who suggested the creation of a Celtic group. It was first officially conceived at Rhosllanerchrugog in Wales during the National Eisteddfod in 1961. The presidency of this prestigious organization was presided by Gwynfor Evans and J E Jones acted as his secretary general. Later on, the Scottish and the Breton leaders also joined them in their advocacy.
The Celtic league has created a stand in the political world as they cry for the reunification of the country of Ireland. They also strongly advocate giving back Loire-Atlantique to Brittany. Among their advocacies is to locate and track down a number of valuable ancient-old Celtic artefacts that are scattered all over the world, even those that are housed in historical museums. The Celtic League is vigilantly working on how they can bring these Celtic treasures back to their homeland.
Among the objectives of the Celtic League is to create a strong solidarity that the world can recognise. This, it hopes will create a strong bond that will create stronger ties between the Celtic nations. The six Celtic nations, although of the same ancestry, also speak of their own individuality as a nation. They stand for unity, but uniformity cannot always be imposed on each other. They try to find a common line where they can agree together, but still preserve the independence of each nation. These nations are also abundant in natural resources that the other countries may find beneficial. One of the aims of the Celtic league is to promote their assets to the world.
