The flag of Scotland, known as the Saltire or St. Andrew’s Cross, is one of the oldest national flags still in use. It features a distinctive white diagonal cross on a blue field. Legend attributes the design to St. Andrew, the patron saint of Scotland, who was crucified on an X-shaped cross. The flag is deeply symbolic, representing Scotland’s Christian heritage and its historical ties to St. Andrew. It is also a proud emblem of Scottish identity and resilience. People widely fly the Saltire across the country. During national events and festivals, it celebrates, embodying the nation’s rich history and enduring spirit.
