The Saltire Society was established in 1936 to encourage everything that might improve the quality of life in Scotland and restore the country to its proper place as a creative force in European civilisation. It seeks to preserve all that is best in Scottish tradition and to encourage new developments which can strengthen and enrich the country's cultural life. It has wide ranging interests including history, literature, music, drama, architecture and planning — and promotes excellence in many fields through a series of national awards. The Society also seeks to revive the memory of famous Scots and to make the nation conscious of its heritage. It seeks to influence decision makers in Scotland through its committees. As well as working at national level the Society has members in Branches throughout Scotland, working to promote the Society's aims within their own communities. Membership to the Society, is available for an annual fee, to all individuals and organisations who support the aims of the Society. The name is taken from the flag of Scotland, which has the form of a saltire.
