Description of the flag

Hawick's Common Riding flag is a gold saltire cross on a blue background with the date 1514 across it. The flag commemorates the victory of the unmarried men of the town who defeated an English raiding party outside Hawick, at Hornshole, in 1514, most of the men of the town having been killed on Flodden Field the previous year.

Hawick Callants

[Banner of Hawick Callants] by Marcus Schmöger

During a raid into Scotland in 1514 the Prior of Hexham's standard was captured by the "Hallwick Callants" and appropriated as the Hawick flag. A vertical line was put through St Andrew's cross. The letters H.C. stand for "Hawick Callants". A copy was presented to the Hexham Abbey by Hawick in 1914 on the 400th anniversary of its capture.
