ZIP File

Fight at Culloden under these Jacobite banners!  All of these flags were captured during the battle and recorded in a list by Major Hugh Wentworth.  He also gave unit designations for many of them. This author's interpretations are in parenthesis.

1. A White Linen Colours, Farquharsons. (Presumably plain white)

2. White Linen, "Terores Ferio", Chisholms.  (The Chisholm motto is Feros Ferio, but both mottoes are provided).

3.  White Colours, plain, said to be the Standard.  (No specific image, use #1 or some plain white material).

4. Blue Silk Colours, "Sursum Tendo".  (Motto belongs to Kinloch family; a Kinloch commanded the 2nd Battalion of Lord Ogilvy's Regiment)

5/6.  Staffs with colours torn off (Not supplied, for obvious reasons)

7.  White Silk Colours, Stewart's Arms, "God Save King". (Unknown whether Scottish royal arms or James II/James III royal arms, both are provided)

8. White Silk, in the corner St. Andrew's Saltire.

9. White Silk with Red Saltire.

10. Blue Silk, Lovat Arms, "Sine Sanguine Victor".

11. White Silk with Blue Saltire.

12. Piece of Blue Silk with St. Andrew's Saltire, "Commit the Work to God." (This reconstruction closely follows 17th Century Covenanter style.  Unit unknown)

13. White Linen Jaik with Red Saltire.

14. One of Lord Lovat's Camp Colours. (Based on the testimony of Thomas Fraser, who described it as "the crest of Lord Lovat's family, the deer's head.")

Flags come as 33 high-quality PNG images: obverse, reverse (where applicable), and complete flag images.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
