I agree Andy - bloody awful - what's wrong with the Piran's anyway ? Interesting in one respect though - obviously someone has recognised a market for Cornish rebels !

It looks more like a version of the Scottish flag... as used by Siol nan Gaidheal and others.

 Random Information. 
 The Cornish Rebellion of 1497 was a popular uprising by the people of Cornwall in the far south west of Britain. Its primary cause was the raising of war taxes by King Henry VII on the impoverished Cornish for a campaign against Scotland, motivated by brief border skirmishes that were inspired by Perkin Warbeck's pretence to the English throne. Tin miners were angered as the scale of the taxes violated previous rights granted by Edward I of England to the Cornish Stannary Parliament which exempted Cornwall from all taxes of 10ths or 15ths of income. The Cornish had little sympathy for English wars against Scotland, considering that most Cornish were not English speakers at that time.
