I understood that there was another similar flag to the one you described but as follows: A vertical tricolour, red, white and blue but this one had an emblem of a Scottish thistle centred in the white band. Do you by any chance know any thing about this flag.
Tom McGeachie, 30 June 2003

I have a source which shows the Burns, Philp & Co., Ltd. houseflag as a regular r/w/b vertical tricolor with the thistle centered on the white stripe.
