To work alongside National Trust for Scotland and Historic Scotland to supply and install a like for like flagpole to maintain the historical significance of the site. Robert the Bruce allegedly put this standard in the ground the night before the Battle of Bannockburn, and its location was commemorated in 1870 with the erection of a large flagpole to fly the saltire. Weather and time had damaged the original, so a replacement was commissioned to meet the 700th anniversary of the Battle in 2014.
- Time constraints - Historically important site - Complicated access and height issues. - Sensitive and careful removal of old mast. - Design and Installation of replica mast.
We were commissioned to exclusively design, develop and install this hugely important 36-meter flagpole for the refurbished site. Prominent decorative thistles, a crown and a bronze memorial plaque were commissioned through one of our affiliate moldings companies. As well as the installation of the replacement mast the project also involved the removal of the existing wooden flagpole. © Photographs: Copyright Ian S. and Stanley Howe; licensed for reuse under this Creative Commons Licence
