About the Saltire or St. Andrew’s Cross
In 1385, the Scottish Parliament decreed that Scots should wear a white St. Andrew’s Cross to identify them. Scotsmen first hoisted a Saltire flag with white cross and blue background, as we know it today, in 1512. The fierce rampant lion is often considered the unofficial national flag. The Standard of the Earl of Douglas allegedly featured both a St. Andrew’s Cross and a Rampant Lion in 1388. This buckle featuring both the Saltire and Rampant Lions is a perfect way to show your Scottish pride!
About Celtic Knots and Interlacing
In the Middle Ages, Irish monks hand drew interlacing patterns within illuminated manuscripts, namely the Book of Kells. This knot is a single line connected, a metaphor for the soul that these monks believe has no beginning nor end. It’s basically a more complicated version of the infinity sign. The perfect way to connect to your Celtic roots!
