Photographer's Note

Some preferred this photograph which I published in WS with this one, then to give pleasure I put it in principal photograph today !!!

You will notice in bottom the Breton flag on the right : "Gwenn-ha-du" which means white and black.

it was drawn in 1923 by Morvan Marchal. It is composed of a field of hermines located in top on the left pointing out the old blazon of the dukes of Brittany and black and white bands:

- The four white bands represent Religious departments of Cornwall, Leon, Trégor and Vannes.

- The five black bands represent Religious departments of Nantes, Saint-Brieuc, Saint-Malo, Dol and Rennes.

Hermines were introduced in Brittany by the Capetienne House of Dreux.

In complementary photograph I introduce the owner of the flag to you…

Good weekend with all.
