Hello! Just a quick, rushed, and not very good sketch here, but I had to post on this day!!!
See, today is St Andrews day, the National Day of Scotland. St Andrew is the Patron Saint of Scotland... this image depicts the Scottish flag as the background. Some interesting info about the flag - It represents the cross of St Andrew, and is in fact one of the oldest flags in the world. It can be dated back to the 9th Century! I never knew that before today. This is how the flag came about:
"According to legend, in 832 A.D. King Óengus (II) (or King Angus) led the Picts and Scots in battle against the Angles under King Aethelstan of East Anglia near modern-day Athelstaneford in East Lothian. King Angus and his men were surrounded and he prayed for deliverance. During the night Saint Andrew, who was martyred on a saltire cross, appeared to Angus and assured him of victory. On the following morning a white saltire against the background of a blue sky appeared to both sides. The Picts and Scots were heartened by this, but the Angles lost confidence and were defeated. This saltire design has been the Scottish flag ever since." (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flag_of_Scotland#History)
My quick image also depicts a critter, native to Scotland - Yes, the rare Haggis! They are an endangered species now. They have 3 legs, and come in various shapes and sizes. More about Haggi' in another post :D
And as for the cake? Well, I drew a cake, coz today isnt just St Andrews day, its also my birthday! So, happy bday to me. Oh. It finished 10 minutes ago haha. Time to put my birthday suit away for another year wahahaha!
