St Andrews Cross Colour

Due to the use of natural dyes through it's history the color of the background of the St Andrew's Cross flag has varied from Navy Blue (the color used in the British Union Flag) to a lighter sky blue. In 2003 a committee of the Scottish Parliament adopted a petition to standardize the colour and settled on an azure blue (Pantone 300), somewhere between dark and light.

Our nylon flags are the new lighter blue color (and are made in the USA). Our polyester flags are a darker blue color.
