Big Burns Day Celebration: Flag Making

Flags are an important symbol and a way of identifying a country as every nation has their own specific flag .

The Scottish flag is also known as the St Andrews Cross or the Saltire. It is very easy to recognise with it’s white cross on a blue background.

The colour white in the Scottish flag symbolises peace and the blue symbolises the virtues of justice, vigilance, and perseverance.

Why don’t you have a go at creating your own flag? You could try making your own Saltire or design your own unique flag like the ones below.

Diane, our art teacher, has made this video to show you some of the different techniques you could use to create your flag.

We would love to see how you get on with you Burns Day activities so please feel free to share any photos or videos via your child’s teacher, through Google Classroom, or email Amy Dunnett (Principal Teacher Primary)
