Visit from Brittany

This morning, a chap came into the shop with a rucksack, and dangling from the rucksack were two flags - the Welsh dragon and a black and white striped flag with a patterned corner, like so:

It's the flag of Brittany, and the chap told me that he came from the town of Gouesnou in Brittany which is twinned with Brecon. A group of Bretons are here at the moment, visiting, and today they all came into Hay. The flag is called "gwenn ha du", which means "white and black" in Breton.
