In ancient warfare, flags and banners were of great importance in identifying one's opponents. King William I (1143-1214), also known as "The Lion", adopted a heraldic device which displayed a lion rampant- meaning violent in action or spirit, raging, or furious. This device became the Royal Coat of Arms in Scotland. The Rampant Lion is also featured on the Royal Flag of Scotland, as well as incorporated into the Great Seal of Scotland.
