A bit of History 

 

According to legend, in 832 King Angus II of the Picts led the Scots in their battle against the Angles, led by Aethelstan of East Anglia, near the present town of Athelstaneford, East Lothian. King Angus and his men were surrounded, and prayed for their lives. At night, St. Andrew appeared to the king and promised him victory. In the morning, both armies were on the sky appear blue with a white cross representing the cross on which St. Andrew was martyred. This appearance gave courage to the Scots, while Anglos were demoralized and lost the match. Historical evidence of the use of St. Andrew's cross as a symbol of Scotland are quite after this legend. In 1385, the Parliament of Scotland decreed that Scottish soldiers should wear the saltire as a mark of distinction. The first preserved Scottish flag consisting solely of a white cross dates from 1503, although the background is red, not blue. By 1540 the legend of King Angus had been modified to its current version, including the vision of a white cross on a blue sky, so from that moment that was the design of the national flag of Scotland.Since 1606 and especially after the final union of England and Scotland by the Act of Union (1707), the flag of Scotland was incorporated into the flag of the United Kingdom, which later was added in 1801 the Cross of St. Patrick to symbolize the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland.
