CORNISH FURY OVER FLAG BAN

Cornish nationalists are incensed at a ruling that those wishing to fly the Cornish National Flag (St. Piran's Cross) need 'official permission' under planning regulations and if successful will have to pay a hefty £75 fee.

Celtic League's Cornish branch Secretary Michael Chappell has pledged to campaign against this absurdity and has defiantly promised that his National flag will remain flying without permission or fees.

Nationalists within Cornwall are already promising support to confront this planning permission absurdity and those in the other Celtic countries wishing to indicate their support should contact the Cornish branch Secretary direct at:

The Cornish flag issue is reminiscent of a similar struggle in Mannin over twenty years ago to ensure that Mann's National Flag was flown and the Union flag binned. That battle was less to do with planning and more a consequence of a 'west Brit' mentality which as recent manifestations of the St. George's Cross show is still prevalent.
