First created in 1963, the Cornish National tartan was designed by the poet E. E. Morton Nance, nephew of Robert Morten Nance. Each colour of tartan has a special significance or meaning. The white cross on a black background is from the banner of Saint Piran, the patron saint of tinners, which is also used as the flag of Cornwall; Black and gold were the colours of the ancient Kings of Dumnonia; red for legs and beak of the national bird, the Cornish Chough, and blue for the blue of the sea surrounding Cornwall.
