St. Andrew's Day
"Happy St. Andrew's Day!"
The newly designed "Here’s tae us!" tartan celebrates Scotland on St. Andrew's Day, bringing two ancient banners together in its design. The first, the Royal Banner of Scotland or Lion Rampant, is one of the country’s most recognisable symbols dating from 1222. The National Flag of Scotland - the Saltire – according to legend originates from 832 AD in a battle fought in today’s East Lothian when an army of Picts and Scots became cornered by a superior force of Angles and Saxons. Prayers for deliverance, led by their leader King Angus, were answered by an inspirational diagonal cross of white cloud in a clear blue sky — the cross of St. Andrew. The Picts and Scots won the day! The sett of this tartan is specially designed such that when printed or worn on the bias, the white cross of 30 threads becomes the Saltire! Sláinte! 🥃 🎉 🏴
Happy St Andrew's Day, November 30th!
St. Andrew is the patron saint of Scotland and of Barbados, Ukraine, Russia, Sicily, Greece, Cyprus, Romania, Prussia, and many more cities and ecclesiastical territories.
He is the patron saint of fishermen, fishmongers, rope-makers, singers, spinsters, maidens, old maids, and women wishing to be mothers. He is traditionally appealed to by sufferers of gout and of sore throats.
