Description of the Flag

This image of the Queen’s Own Highlander Regimental Flag is from a postcard which I picked up at the public library in Wick.
Darrell Neuman, 2 September 2009

A Scottish white saltire on blue, with the regimental badge in red centred: a stag skull and antlers, surmounted by a thistle and crown, and ribbon bearing the text CUIDICH 'N RIGH [Help the king].

All of the Scottish regiments were abolished back in the mid-2000s, so I am not sure of the current status of this flag, or whether it is being used by its successor body (as it were) The Highlanders, 4th Battalion, Royal Regiment of Scotland (4 SCOTS). Presumably it is not, as they have their own insignia.
