Jacobite flag

Donated by Sir J. Henderson Stewart
Museum number: 1920-413

This flag is an amazing survivor of the Battle of Culloden in 1746.

Other flags captured at Culloden were taken to Edinburgh and burned. However Captain John Kinloch, who carried the flag at Culloden, hid it at Logie House near Kirriemuir. It was rediscovered in 1920 when the effects of the house were sold.

The flag was made for and carried by the 2nd Battalion of Lord Ogilvy's Forfarshire regiment during the Jacobite rising. After the defeat at Culloden the regiment retreated south to Glen Clova, where it was disbanded.

The old Scottish motto translates from Latin as "No one provokes me with impunity".
