About the flag

The image at is labeled "Title: Fisherman's wedding flag".
James Dignan, 2 November 2005

"Wedding flags were used at marriages in fishing communities. The flag could be made by the bride herself and would be hoisted from the mast of the groom's boat on the eve of the wedding. After the celebrations the youngest member of the crew brought it down. It was said that the state of the flag was an indicator of the how the marriage would go!" - Jennifer Gordon, Assistant/Acting Curator, Scottish Fisheries Museum.
