Royal Banner of Scotland, Lion Rampant Flag
Royal Banner of Scotland
Imported and Made in USA items.
William, who succeeded his father, Malcolm IV in 1165, was known as William the Lion. Our first positive evidence that the lion rampant had become "the Arms of Dominion of Scotland" was in 1222, when it appeared in the seal of his son, Alexander II. Before this time, the Scottish royal standard bore a dragon. We know of legendary use of the lion rampant by Fergus I in 300 BC.
