Tartan Details - St. Piran Cornish Flag

The information held within The Scottish Register of Tartans for the "St. Piran Cornish Flag" tartan is shown below. 

STA ref: 1618
STWR ref: 1618
Designer: Evans/Rawe?
Tartan date: 01/01/1983
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: District
Registration 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, original Scottish Tartans Authority reference). To avoid confusion, Abi Evans then changed the name of this 'St Piran' to the 'Cornish Flag'. Still available from Abi Evans of Trevecca. This update at 21st Sept 2005. Free for anyone to weave (Abi Evans May 2006). 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.

Please note

Where tartans were recorded before the establishment of the Scottish Register of Tartans (SRT) on 5 February 2009, the original Scottish Tartans Authority (STA) and the Scottish Tartans World Register (STWR) reference numbers have been retained. The new SRT reference number can be found in the address box on your browser (url).

The registration criteria now applied by the Register conforms to the Scottish Register of Tartans Act 2008. These criteria are different to those previously applied by either the STA or the STWR. You may wish to refer to the STA website for further information on the original recording of this tartan.
