[Spellyans] yesterday's BIG surprise

Some very instructive stuff here, David.
Many thanks for sending it. The inclusion of Baner Peran amongst 'county'
and 'regional' flags is well observed. What is interesting here is that it
seems to have been the only one such to have been included amongst the
'national' flags on Gloriana.
I am inclined to go with Ewan in feeling that someone in the Palace or Royal
Household was minded to have it included. Devon did not get the same accord
- or any of the others.
Sorry to wander off topic. - an ken Ken

I think this may have been a last minute addition judging from the following
http://www.flaginstitute.org/Thames_Pageant_Flag_Guide.pdf - where St.
Piran's banner is listed under "county and regional flags"
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-devon-18307741 - where a graphic shows
Gloriana with 4 flags including what appears to be 2 St. George's crosses.
A cynic might say it is a sop to the Cornish after Prince Charles decided to
concrete over the Tregurra valley near Truro for a new Waitrose to sell more
Duchy Originals biscuits.
