Historical Tales of the Wars of Scotland
Battle of Athelstaneford


Tradition states that in 832, a Pictish King defeated a Northumbrian warlord called Athelstan in East Lothian. During the battle, the image of a St Andrew's cross appeared in the sky and gave heart to the outnumbered Picts. They won the day, and in thanks to God honoured St Andrew above all other saints. When the Picts and Scots united, the St Andrew's cross became the national emblem.
