Tidbits Regarding :

The Two? Flags of Scotland

The Saltire The Rampant Lion

The following information was provided in 2002 by the Scottish Parliament Public Information Service:

... It is important to note that the Scottish Parliament can only legislate on devolved matters and that Scotland is not an independent country ... However ...THE SALTIRE is the official Scottish flag, the flag of St Andrew, patron saint of Scotland. The court of the Lord Lyon states, “Blue with a white or silver diagonal cross reaching to its edges, this is the correct flag for all Scots or Scottish corporate bodies to fly to demonstrate their loyalty and their Scottish nationality.”

There is a second flag which is associated with Scotland, the “Rampant Lion”, or Royal Flag of Scotland. Strictly speaking, the Royal Flag of Scotland should only be used by the monarch in relation to her capacity as Queen in Scotland.

Basically then, the Saltire (or St Andrew's Cross - say sal-teer') is the national flag of Scotland and the Rampant Lion is the Royal flag.

Please recall that we have over 250 different flags in stock in many sizes.
