I wish that you had followed your own advice the last time that we exchanged words! :)

I agree with you re the free-thinkers, but how many people are truly of this ilk from a position of knowledge, having been brainwashed about Cornwall - probably all their lives? In addition to this misrepresentation, as Hunlef has also mentioned on another thread, the root cause of the Cornish problem is one of legal rights. When this is properly addressed, would you agree that there will be a need for some form of transitional accommodation.

Wrong because the flag is not just for the EU it is a flag used for europe.



I understand what you mean by that but as someone living in Switzerland I can assure you there are many people here who would disagree with your statement.

Yea so? There are many people in the Duchy who are the same but that does not stop the flag being one for all Europeans irrespective of the institutions.

Politicians may want the flag to be perceived that way to ease the move to integration, but it is certainly not perceived that way by many, many people.

Greater integration into Europe would be brilliant for Cornwall and its status. Cornwall is recognised and supported as a specific region throughout Europe and many European countries have names in their own languages for Cornwall e.g.:-

Cornovaglia - Italy
Cornouailles -France
Cornualles - Spain
Kornwalia -Poland
Kernev Veur - Brittany
Cornualla - Catalonia
A Chorn - Ireland
Corn na Breataine - Gaelic
Cornoalha - Occitan
Cornualha - Portugal

I hear that the Welsh for Cornwall is Cernyw.

The closest of all to Kernow.

I'd call it more tha close - it is exaclty the same word. It only looks different because of standardisation of modern written Welsh, such as adoption of C instead of K, and the difference between yw and ow is almost nothing. Cernyw is name used for several places in Wales, such as in Llangernyw, Denbighshire. The pre-roman tribe of the Cornovii – (who’s territory was Shrops. parts of Staffordshire., Cheshire, Clwyd & E. Powys) – this is surely a latinised form of Cernyw/kernow. Corn means ‘horn’.
