Dating back to the 13th Century, The Royal Standard of The Scottish Kings was shown as a Red Lion (in relief), upon a Yellow field with Red trimming. It is now used (sparingly) on specific Government buildings and for other important Scottish Ceremonies. Prior to 1603, both The Royal Scottish Standard and The British Union Jack – were displayed together. After James I'm the Standard was “retired” to Scotland (proper). The “Lion Rampant” is one of Scotland's most recognized symbols. In 1707, The English Royal Standard was quartered to include Scotland's symbol.
