Saltire through the arch - Cathedral ruins, St. Andrews, Scotland

Saltire through the arch - Cathedral ruins, St. Andrews, Scotland 

The actual word 'Saltire' means a cross with diagonal bars of equal length' and the national flag of Scotland is made up of a white saltire (aka St. Andrews' Cross) on a blue background. First hoisted in 1512, it's believed to be one of the oldest flags in the world still in use today.
