Description of the flag

The canting arms of Cornwall date from 1426. They represent a ram passant. Kernev, the Breton name of the province, comes from the words Kern, horn and Knev, fleece.

Yoran Delacour, designer of this new flag (1996),took as a starting point the the flag of the Swiss cantons of Grishun and Schaffhausen. The ram is thus projecting and has a more combative bearing.

This flag was approved by the Breton Vexillological Society.
