Scotland’s flag, also known as St. Andrew’s Cross or the Saltire, dates from the 16th century. The X shape comes from the story of St. Andrew, Scotland’s patron saint, who was crucified on an X-shaped cross. According to legend, Oengus II led an army into battle in 832. An X in the sky led him to victory, leading to this flag design and also to St. Andrew’s appointment as patron saint of Scotland.
This outdoor flag is made from durable 200-Denier nylon that has been treated to resist fading. The flag is finished with a sturdy white canvas heading and grommets. Its image is dyed, single-sided, and reversed on the back.
