Cornish nationalists protest against World Cup England flags (UK)

Cornish nationalists have launched a bid to stop England flags being sold in the county’s shops in the run-up to the World Cup.

The Kernow branch of the Celtic League has even vowed to take on Tesco, with some activists calling for a boycott.

In its bid to stop ‘Englishness being forced on Cornwall by sup­ermarkets’ it has set up a campaign on Facebook – but has so far attracted only 55 members.

Even Mebyon Kernow, the Party for Cornwall which has three seats on the county’s council, refused to back the headline-grabbing campaign.
MK councillor Andrew Long said he was not offended by St George flags. He stopped short of criticising the campaign but said there were ‘more imp­ortant things to be dealing with’. He added: ‘We are a multi-cultural party who believe in respecting other peoples’ culture and tradition while encouraging Cornish culture.’
But Michael Chappell of the Celtic League said he had received ‘many complaints about the oncoming flood of St George flags’.

He added: ‘This is a foreign flag here and can be quite insulting to some.

‘If Cornwall had its own sports teams I am sure we would see more of our own flags [pictured] rather than foreign English ones,’ said Mr Chappell, adding he hoped England would ‘fall by the wayside early in the competition’.
