Cornwall’s flag

St. Piran's Day
Given its designation as a symbol of national identity, the Cornish flag enjoys a wide usage and recognition being regularly seen around both Cornwall and the world as a symbol of the Cornish diaspora. It is widely displayed on cars and from buildings, including those of Cornwall Council and appears, of course, in abundance, on March 5th, St Piran’s Day. Cornwall Flag
