What is the Royal Lion of Scotland?
Although the national flag of Scotland is the blue and white Saltire, the Scottish people also have a second, very different, flag which is called the 'Royal Lion Rampant'.
The 'Royal' term applies because this flag historically belongs to the monarchy of Scotland. It's a more colorful and dramatic flag than the Saltire, and may be a little more memorable because of that.
The term 'lion rampant' refers to the positioning of the lion. A rampant lion is shown in profile standing upright on hind legs with forelegs raised and claws unsheathed, as if to strike.
The fierce and battle-strewn history of Scotland makes this lion the perfect symbol of Scottish pride!
