Cornish Tin – St Piran flag bookmark – a nickel-plated page marker with a cold enamelled Cornish tin St Piran flag on the top.
St Piran is the patron saint of tin miners and also the national saint of Cornwall.
St Piran rediscovered tin-smelting when his black hearthstone, which was evidently a slab of tin-bearing ore,
had the tin smelt out of it and rise to the top to form a white cross.
From this came the St Piran flag which is the white cross on the black background that you can see all over Cornwall today.
St Piran’s day is celebrated annually on 5th March.
