(Cornish: Gool Peran) is the national day of Cornwall, held on 5 March every year. The day is named after one of the patron saints of Cornwall, Saint Piran, who is also the patron saint of tin miners.
It is St Piran’s flag a white cross on a black background which has been adopted by Cornwall.
From Penzance to Truro; Bodmin to Newquay, they’ll be all-out celebrations with parades, live entertainment, market stalls, street performances and plenty of food and drink. Head to the local villages, here they’ll be staging their own versions of St Piran’s Day.
