St. Andrew's Day is Scotland's official national day and has been a public holiday
since 2007. If it falls on a Saturday or Sunday, the following Monday becomes a substitute bank holiday. It is also an official flag day, which means the Flag of Scotland, a white diagonal cross on a blue field, also known as Saltire or St. Andrew's Cross, is to be flown on all government buildings with a flagpole.
The day is observed by Scotts in Scotland and worldwide with celebrations of Scottish culture, such as eating traditional Scottish food and performing Scottish music and dance. It is the beginning of a season of Scottish winter festivals comprising St. Andrew's Day, Hogmanay (Scotland's New Year celebrations) on December 31 and Burns Night on January 25, the annual celebration of Scotland's national poet Robert Burns.
