        The red lion rampant on a gold background is the coat of arms of the Scottish monarch. It is the Royal Standard of Scotland and should only be used by the monarch or his or her representitives.

        The white saltire cross on a blue background is the Saint Andrew's cross. St. Andrew is the patron saint of Scotland, and he met his end crucified on an X shaped cross. (He is supposed to have asked for this style of cross because he felt he was not worthy of being crucified on the same type of cross as Jesus Christ.) The St. Andrew's cross is the national flag of Scotland and represents the country and her people.

        If you think in terms of the United States, the president is represented by an eagle clutching 13 arrows but the country is represented by the Stars & Stripes. In Scotland the monarch is represented by the lion rampant but the country is represented by the saltire.
