A Cornish language editorial featured for the first time in the history of a weekly newspaper to celebrate Cornwall’s patron saint’s day.
The West Briton’s masthead was also turned black and gold, the colours of Cornwall, to mark St Piran’s Day.
Two reader columns featured in the revived Celtic language, while the newspaper’s editorial comment was also translated from English for the occasion.
The edition also contained a 12-page supplement celebrating the return of the BBC drama Poldark, set and filmed in Cornwall.
Editor Jacqui Walls said: “This was a great opportunity for us to celebrate our unique culture and identity in Cornwall. It was a really exciting project to work on and we’ve received some great feedback from readers.”
The Truro-based title also published features on the Cornish culture and identity, including a Lifestyle piece on what it means to be Cornish, an in-depth report on the importance of Brand Cornwall and several columns from local people on Cornish pride.
