For flag and country...

I am expecting flak for this but here goes...

After a spell away from the site, I returned to see many shiny new things to press and do, but, if I recall, in the country options, Cornwall was an option and St Piran's flag would be proudly displayed.

Now I'd rather not start a debate about the devolution or re-devolution or the validity of the Stanneries or bring up An Gof. But it would be nice for us Kernewek's to be able to fly the colours, or lack of them.

Please bring back Cornwall, all is forgiven.

I shall return to my desk and remain quiet for the rest of the day, sorry.

Might be worth you looking at this thread posted by Geoff.

AFAIR the decision was made to only use ISO standard countries as the requests for the various different flags were getting out of hand and taking up too much time.

If the upgrade has happend cant they return now?

A Saint Davids flag would be nice, or cheshire.

But I think request like that are why they got removed Sad

Sorry didn't search, skoolboy error, apologies.

However after reading that I feel the urge to point out that Cornwall's independence or at least right to govern itself was tested in the high courts in 1997 and the legalities were found to be good.

Lots of facts and things to make the English giggle can be found here

Shame the ISO is not properly standardised Wink

The Welsh and the Cornish had close connections a long way back but I can't fly the red dragon. Thanks though.

Well, I suppose that we ought to look closer at this. Somerset, being God's own country should be exempt from all UK taxation for a start.

Yes, I can see how this could get silly!

I choose to make a statement as I am unable to fly my flag. Technically I guess the Kerneweks should fly the Irish flag, seeing as Piran was an Irish monk.

Long live the Britons. Tongue

Equal opportunities I suppose, since the patron saint of Ireland wasn't Irish, what goes around (the islands) comes around? Wink

And a lot of Scottish roots descend from Irish clans.

Spread the love Smile
