First used by Alexander II in 1222.
In the United States, this is often mistaken for the national flag of Scotland. It is actually intended just for Scottish Royalty. The Scottish Parliament even banned unauthorized use of this flag in 1672. However, in 1934, King George V granted permission for all Scots to use it as a symbol of Scottish patriotism.
The flag is 3'x5' and made from a premium 100 denier polyester. It has a white header with two grommets. There are four rows of stitches on the fly and two rows on the top, bottom, and header side. The image is screen printed and appears on both sides. Writing will be reversed on the back.
3'x5' flags are 3 feet x 5 feet, 36 inches by 60 inches, 91 cm by 152 cm, 1 yard by 1.7 yards. This is the most common size flag you see hanging on porches, small flag poles, hanging at festivals, and inside of bars and restaurants.
