According to Scottish law, this flag should only be displayed by the King or Queen of Scots (and strictly speaking, there hasn't been a King or Queen of Scots since 1707). Despite this, the banner is commonly used as a second national flag of Scotland. The official flag of Scotland is the Cross of St. Andrew.
The exact origin of the use of the lion rampant is unknown. Some say that the lion was used by King Fergus I in 300 BC on the armorial ensign of Scotland.
William the Lion (1143-1214) is generally credited with adopting the lion symbol, although the earliest evidence of the lion rampant being used is in the seal of his son, Alexander II, dating from 1222.
