Cornish Flag (District)
  • Notes: This tartan was originally called the St Piran (patron saint of Cornwall) and was to be woven by Abi Armstrong Evans and marketed in conjunction with Donald Rawe of Padstow. There was a very complicated 'High Court' parting of the ways however and Donald Rawe abandonded his claims to the rights of this tartan (which had been registered by Abi Armstrong Evans) and went on to design the St Piran Dress tartan (#1685). To avoid confusion, Abi Evans then changed the name of this 'St Piran' to the 'Cornish Flag'. The white cross on the black represents the flag of Cornwall and the symbol of St Piran, patron saint of the Cornish tin miners. The red represents the scarlet leg and beak of the Cornish chough, the national bird.
