Photographer's Note

I visited the Scottish Saltire Centre today at the church at Athelstaneford, where the Scottish Flag (The Saltire) was first seen in the sky in the 1200s.

The Scots king (Angus) was losing in a battle, looked up & saw the white cross against a blue sky, took it as a sign of good luck and fought the battle and won - I've put a photo of the plaque in a workshop.

In a tiny but lovely doocot at the bottom of the church yard (I'll post a picture as well), you creep through a tiny door & inside when you shut the door a short audio visual starts up.

This is part of it and the colours are gorgeous and the place very atmospheric.

It is The Flag Heritage Centre for Scotland's national flag.

The graveyard is full of interesting old gravestones as well.
