Saint Piran or Perran (traditionally in Cornwall, saints are simply named, without this title) (Cornish: Peran) is an early 6th century Cornish abbot and saint, supposedly of Irish origin.
He is the patron saint of tin-miners, and is also generally regarded as the patron saint of Cornwall, although Saint Michael and Saint Petroc also have some claim to this title.Saint Piran's Flag, a white cross on a black background, is used as a symbol of Cornwall. Saint Piran's Day takes place on 5 March. This proud Cornishman was part of the annual parade to celebrate the saint in Truro recently.
