Saint Margaret flag dedicated and blessed


The Saint Margaret flag was dedicated and blessed in a celebration after First Friday Mass on June 1. The eighth grade graduating class raised the flag, which consists of a white saltire (St. Andrew Cross)on a blue field, which is the national flag of Scotland. St. Margaret’s personal royal heraldry includes, in part, the rampant red lion, first used by her husband, King Malcom III, King of Scotland (1058-1093). It is emblazoned on the white satire in honor of Scotland’s only royal saint. The flag flew through June to honor the St. Margaret School graduates and then through November to honor the Saint Margaret patroness whose feast day in celebrated in the Catholic Church November 16.
