Such is the strength of the Scottish communities in parts of the northwest of England that since 1927 a Lancashire and Cheshire Federation of Scottish Societies has existed to represent the Scottish organisations existing in the region and to promote Scottish cultural activities. Covering Lancashire, Cheshire, Greater Manchester, Merseyside and North Wales, the Federation’s membership includes over forty societies and acts as a link both between those groups and between them and Scotland. The centre of this panel is based on the Federation’s badge, showing a red lion rampant over a white saltire and flanked by thistles.

Tha meadhan a’ phannail seo stèidhichte air bràiste a’ Chaidreachais, a’ taisbeanadh leòmhann dearg na sheasamh os cionn bratach gheal le fòghnanan air gach taobh.
