means white and black in Breton.
In Nahant we are blessed with a very solid group of friends, club members, sailing enthusiasts etc. Luckily, we ran into a nice French couple from Brittany/Normandie, Helene and Jerome Rossert, during our Bon Voyage departure party in June. As a departure present they gave us a memory stick with French sailor songs and more importantly Gwenn-ha-du, the flag of Brittany.
A very nice gesture. Helene and Jerome, we will make sure to fly this courtesy flag throughout our stay in your beautiful homeland.
Btw – we met a couple of boats from Brittany by now and most of them fly this flag with pride over in the Azores as well. A group of sailors, from close to Paris, that spent 2 weeks on their club’s boat on Terceira, Graciosa and Pico, told us that the flag is not that old, around 50 years, and was designed after the American flag…
