Scotland Flag

The Scottish Flag was adopted during the 14th Century.  The flag contains a white saltire symbolizing the cross of Saint Andrew on a blue field.  There are earlier records of the Saint Andrew`s cross that date back to 1165 AD.  The legend of the flag states that in 832 AD during a battle against the Angles King Angus and his men prayed for deliverance.  At night Saint Andrews who was martyred on a saltire cross appeared and promised the king victory.  The next morning a white saltire cross appeared in the blue sky.  That day the Picts and Scots defeated the Angles and the Saltire has been the flag of Scotland since then.
