A30 Cornish flag graffiti restored after Devon flag vandalism
A Cornish flag painted along the roadside of the A30 has been restored to its former glory after it was painted Devonian green.
The black-and-white Cornish graffiti is situated adjacent to the the busy eastbound dual carriageway on Bodmin Moor.
A few months ago it was painted over by a green Devon flag but it has now, in the words of Cornwall's best-loved comedian Kernow King, "been restored to her rightful colours".
The Falmouth funnyman told the Cornish Guardian: "I appreciate that banter with Devon and our rivalries are par for the course and a lot of fun, but painting over our flag is very disrespectful.
"It may be a bit of graffiti on the moor, but tens of thousands of us give a little nod to that flag when we're off up-country and I doubt very much anyone in the Duchy would have the complete lack of respect to paint a St Piran on the Plymouth side of the Tamar!
"Whoever is doing it should save their Devonian pride for the sports field where our rivalries and pride can be contested, not under the cover of darkness with a can of green spray paint."
