This is particularly good to see, as the flag at the trees is a sign of respect when visiting a foreign port.

Her indoors was watching "Emmerdale" the other day and during the advert break there was a St. Pirans Flag on a fishing boat, in some advert for online bingo.

Its in those sort of sponsored by ads that appear at the beginning and end of the advert breaks.

Someone may have the technical skills to capture the image, I certainly don't !

No Cornish flags obviously in sight
But an inspiring artist and song with loads of black and white!

....ImageImageImageImage

Song title: Come Alive (The War Of The Roses) ;)

White Cornish Rose:

Red English Rose:

The White Rose

The first time I met you, my darling
Your face was as fair as the rose,
But now your dear face has grown paler
As pale as the lily white rose.

Chorus
I love the White Rose in its splendour
I love the White Rose in its bloom
I love the White Rose so fair as she grows.
It’s the rose that reminds me of you.
You're fair as the spring, oh my darling
Your face shines so bright, so divine
The fairest of blooms in my garden
Oh lily white rose, you are mine

Chorus

Years pass by so quickly, my darling,
Each makes you more precious to me;
But long may we grow close together,
Oh, lily-white rose, cling to me.

Chorus

Now I am alone, my sweet darling,
I walk through the garden and weep,
But spring will return with your presence
Oh lily white rose, mine to keep

Chorus

Alternate fourth verse

And now that you've left me my darling
From your grave one single flower grows
I will always remember you darling
When I gaze on that lily white rose.

STOP THE CORNISH GENOCIDE! -
They declare their Cornishness with pride
Whilst oblivious to our genocide
That England imposes
With smiles and Red Roses
Where the innocents, so gullibly, reside.

The 'Hispaniola' in the recent Sky adaptation of RL Stevenson's 'Treasure Island', flew St Piran's flag loud and proud in many a shot. I would have uploaded some screen-grabs but the copy we were lent has been returned before I had a chance! Cheers missus!
No doubt Sky will release it to buy.
Incidentally, they made Trelawney a villain, as well as his man, who was named 'Redruth'.
As long as a hundred of us remain alive, we shall never give in to the domination of the English. We fight not for glory, not for wealth nor honours but only and alone for freedom, which no good man surrenders but with his life...
