Never heard of saltire boards? You have now. Possibly something which could be applied in Kernow. By the way, the Scottish Patriots are not purely some "anti-English group" as implied in the article.

Let me take you back to these two articles:

SALTIRE SIGNS ON MOVE AGAIN AS MYSTERY GROWS

16:00 - 30 September 2005

An Anti-English group has gone on the march in the North-east -following a fly-posting crackdown

After a series of St Andrew's cross signs were removed in the Stonehaven area, new ones have appeared on three main roads miles away.

The signs - featuring a St Andrew's cross with a small white "P" - can be seen on the A90 north of Aberdeen near Ellon, the A944 west of Elrick, and the B9000 Pitmedden road.

The signs are thought to be the work of anti-English group, the Scottish Patriots, which encourages the making and displaying of signs.

Scottish Patriot members view Westminster and the Scottish Parliament as "illegal assemblies", designed to deny "Scotland and its people their sovereign rights".

BT swung into action after the Evening Express highlighted signs in the Stonehaven area.

Around half a dozen, screwed to BT telegraph poles, were removed in recent weeks from the B979 Peterculter to Stonehaven road.

A BT spokeswoman said: "It is not possible for us to check all streets but where we are made aware of the existence of these items, we are removing them.

"We would like to remind organisations and individuals that they have no legal right to place such items on our property."

The Scottish Patriots organisation was said to be founded by Andrew McIntosh, who was found dead in Craiginches Prison, Aberdeen, last October. The organisation could not be contacted.

Aberdeenshire Council and Grampian Police are monitoring the situation.

Following this is a short piece in todays P & J : [Aberdeen Press and Journal - SR]

MORE SALTIRE SIGNS ARE SEEN IN REGION

More Scots Patriot signs are reported to have been put on telegraph poles in parts of Aberdeenshire, despite a fly posting crackdown.

The Anti English nationalist group is thought to be responsible for placing a number of Saltire signs which feature a small white 'P' on them, on the A90 north of Aberdeen near Ellon, the A944 west of Elrick and the Aberdeen Pitmedden road.

The new signs appeared just three months after eight signs appeared in the Stonehaven area.

The placards made of old wood are painted and screwed to telegraph poles about 8ft up.

They are believed to be a sign the group is still thriving despite the death of founder Andrew McIntosh in Craiginches Prison, Aberdeen last year.

The Saltires are also thought to be part of a peaceful protest, however, aimed at embedding the image of the flag in the national psyche.
