A country’s flag is a banner of national pride. For Scotland, the simple design of a white cross on a blue background is a tribute to St. Andrew, the country’s patron saint.
Scotland’s flag is a white cross diagonally on a blue background. The flag is known as the St. Andrew’s Cross. It has flown at least since the 12th Century, making it the oldest national flag in Europe. St. Andrew was an ancient martyr who was beloved in Scotland. He is honored every November 30 on St. Andrew’s Day. Wear this hat any day to celebrate the country’s heritage.
