I think it's appalling ..... and I'm Cornish!
Why do they think they're special? I live in Berkshire now ... is there a Berkshire ensign? What a load of nonsense!

Nice enough flag but...

...why would you want to wear one on the ensign staff?

It doesn't mean anything; it isn't a National Maritime Colour.

As it has no real legitimacy trying to look official seems a bit pointless
I'd go with the pasty and clotted cream
or howabout a yokel with a big chip on his shoulder?

it all rather depends if it is meant as a bit of fun or is a all part of this regional assembly nonsense

As other posts it is not proper as shown, in my opinion it shows ignorance.

I consider my boat to be Cornish. It is at present based in Plymouth, I do sometimes fly a Devon flag at the port spreaders, but now I read that the border of Devon/Cornwall is the Easter river bank of the Tamar, not centre as i thought.

I dont see anything wrong with this use of the Devon flag. As I progress East I may fly the shown "cornish ensign" on port side
