Bleuñ-Brug (Breton, Heather Flower) was founded in 1905 by the priest Y.-V. Perrot to defend the Breton language and the Roman Catholic religion.

Flag of Bleuñ-Brug

Bleuñ-Brug originally used a white flag with a black centered cross and seven ermine spots (4 + 3) in each of the four quarters.
The association also used a more specific flag, purple with a white Celtic cross inscribing an unusual geometrical ermine spot with a wide basis. Purple stood for heather, the Celtic cross for Christianity and Celtic culture, and the ermine spot for Brittany.

Flag of Urz Goanag Breiz - Image by Ivan Sache, 6 January 1999

Urz Goanag Breiz (Order of the Breton Hope) was a youth movement for Celtic revival founded in 1943 by Y.-V. Perrot and H. Caouissin, on the model of the Welsh movement Urdd Gobaith Cymru (Order of the Welsh Hope).
The flg of the order, designed by H. Caouissin, is similar to the second Bleuñ-Brug flag, purple being replaced by green to recall the Welsh origin of the movement. Rectangular and square flags were used.
