The Flag of Scotland, (Scottish Gaelic: Bratach na h-Alba, Scots: Banner o Scotland), also known as St Andrew's Cross or the Saltire, is the national flag of Scotland. As the national flag, the Saltire, rather than the Royal Standard of Scotland, is the correct flag for all individuals and corporate bodies to fly. It is also flown by Scottish Government Buildings According to legend, the Christian apostle and matyr Saint Andrew, the Scottish Patron Saint, was crucified on an X-shaped cross, which was first useed in Scotland by William I in 1180, and depicted on seals.
