Re: Cornwall's National St Piran Flag - Appearing Near You?

Astronomy: A natural science which is the study of celestial objects, the physics, chemistry, and evolution of such objects, and phenomena that originate outside the atmosphere of Earth. Nice to see how you compare this with the status of Cornwall. How about using the concepts of theology as Cornwal...

Re: Cornwall's National St Piran Flag - Appearing Near You?

You can play around with words all you like PT, but Cornwall is not recognised as a country/nation either nationally or internationally.
BTW England and Scotland are countries within the UK of GB and Northern Island. Wales is a Principality and therefore not represented on The Union flag.

Re: Cornwall's National St Piran Flag - Appearing Near You?

Well you have your thoughts and I have mine. I would dispute your idea of language, lots of areas of England have sayings/ phrases unique to that area. Cornish was never a written language and spoken mainly by the peasantry. Today if there's not a word, a Welsh word is used. Great to learn it if you...

Re: Cornwall's National St Piran Flag - Appearing Near You?

So on your definition of a nation we have many in England, besides Cornwall. Yorkshire, Lancashire, Dorset, Devon, Somerset - the list goes on and on!
Perhaps we are a united nation known as England, plus of course our neighbours in Scotland and Wales.

Re: Cornwall's National St Piran Flag - Appearing Near You?

Cornwall is not a nation, for sure some of the Cornish national brigade would like to think so, but they are very much a minority with a minority point of view. Trouble is with your points is that there are no hard facts. Like many parts of England these were perhaps leaders who regarded themselves ...

Re: Cornwall's National St Piran Flag - Appearing Near You?

Interesting stuff, P_T, but all very ancient and verging on mythological. You are going back to a time of many kingdoms across the whole of England. Finally there are no unique laws to Cornwall, no judiciary and no parliament. The nearest in the ancient stannary courts and parliament which solely re...

Re: Cornwall's National St Piran Flag - Appearing Near You?

I must admit I've never heard of a King of Cornwall or Cornwall ever being a Kingdom. Can you give me some info? Of course there was a King of Mercia and Wessex, but not all historians can agree on this, they were in fact popularised by writers at the time. Incidentally I just gave a few examples of...

Re: Cornwall's National St Piran Flag - Appearing Near You?

Cornwall is not and has never been a country. It doesn't have an elected parliament, no judiciary, no leader, no defence, no laws which aren't under English, British or European law. These are just a few examples why Cornwall isn't a country. Yes It's a region of England with its own, unique, Celtic...

Re: Cornwall's National St Piran Flag - Appearing Near You?

I don't think you have to ask me for a definition. If you wish to find out this simple question, look in a book or place the word into the Google search engine. (Others are available :lol: )

England is a country which is part of the United Kingdom. Didn't you learn this at school? :lol:

Yes. Cornwall is a Country with it's own indigenous people, unique culture and identity.
No Cornwall is a county within England with it's own indigenous people, unique culture and identity. It has never been a country.

Re: Cornwall's National St Piran Flag - Appearing Near You?

Glad you pointed this out Graham: "The government’s approach to the Framework Convention is to be modified to recognise the unique position of the Cornish as a Celtic people within England". That is exactly why I have raised these points in previous comments. That is exactly why English flags are in...

Re: Cornwall's National St Piran Flag - Appearing Near You?

Obviously there are other teams in the World Cup roy999, that's why it's called the World Cup!! You can support who you like but shops, supermarkets will sell the flags that are in demand and wanted. You are in a minority in the county - the majority will be supporting the home country England, like...
