The Iaith Gwaith (Working Welsh) scheme and the orange speech bubble badge is used to show if a person can speak Welsh.

The Iaith Gwaith badge is well established – it can be seen everywhere and is an opportunity for people to show that they can speak Welsh and that others are welcome to speak Welsh with them, whether that be in the shop, in the hospital or in the leisure centre.

Since launching in 2005, the bubble has been used in a variety of creative ways.

We can also offer licenses for organisations to be able to produce their own merchandise and use the brand on material that is already available to staff.

Examples of these are,

  • embroidering the logo on uniforms
  • print stickers for events and conferences
  • produce a shop/business sign or print a sign on a vehicle with the logo
  • placing the badge on the ID card of Welsh-speaking staff.

These methods have grown popular and are an alternative if the lanyard or badge cannot be used.  Please contact us to discuss.


It has also inspired Scotland to adopt a similar scheme. In October 2019 Bòrd na Gàidhlig (Gaelic Language Board) launched a blue bubble to encourage Gaelic speakers to inform others that they were able to speak the language.
