Athelstaneford Flown Saltires
Buy a Used Saltire that has Flown at Athelstaneford – Birthplace of Scotland’s Flag
There are two flagpoles at the Athelstaneford site on which Saltires are flown permanently – one at the Saltire Memorial close to Main Street on which a 5ft x 4ft Saltire is flown and floodlit at night, and one at the viewpoint next to the Heritage Centre on which a “skinny” 8ft long vimpel Saltire is flown. When these flags begin to show signs of wear and tear, they are replaced. Depending on the weather, flags can last for about 6 months.
In recent years, public interest has grown in acquiring Saltires that have been flown at the historic Athelstaneford site, and the Trust is happy to meet this demand. There is no set price, but interested parties are asked to make a donation. These have been in the range £25 – £50 per flag. There is a waiting list.
