In 1679 a rebbeilion occuried in Lowland Scotland.  After years of religious persecution by an authoritarian state who had tried to force religious change on the Scotish people, tension grew and free religion was being convened by covernanters in the open countryside but surrounded by there own armed guards  There were two battles, Drumclog was a large skirmish where the Royal dragoons were put to flight.  There were also battles within Glasgow when it was occupied by the Covernanters.  The second and largest was a battle was at Bothwell bridge near Glasgow where the rebels were eventually defeated by the Royalist goverenment soldiers. The Covernanters spent more time on religious questions than on the outcome of the battle! 

Flags were used, some old ECW flags in the campaign at skirmishes at Drumclog and Glasgow and at the final battle at Bothwell Bridge where the Covernanter forces were defeated.  Strangley, he leader of the English forces was James Scott, The Duke of Monmouth !

Prior to the Covernanter Rebbelion but part of it there had been a previous uprising in Lowland Scotland in 1666.  A large army of disidents formed and marched on Edinburgh hoping to gain further support.  Close to Edinburgh and realising that more recruits were not coming they turned away south and camped for the night at Rullion Green in the Pentland Hills.  A Royalist advance force of Cavalry which had been pursuing them, caught them there and a battle occuried.  The rebels, mainly on foot withstood two charges by the goverment cavalry and only on the third did they break and flee off into the gathering darkness

Covenanter Flags from the war of 1679

Flags used by the rebellious Covenanter forces during the rising in lowland Scotland in 1679 against autocratic religious practices   Flags were used in the campaign at Drumclog, Glasgow and final battle of Bothwell Bridge

English flags will be the same as used by James 11 forces at the Battle of Sedgemoor in 1685

Some of the original flags of this period still exsist in Scotland

Tangiers was a wedding present to Charles 11 from his wife Catherine of Braganza.  Trying to hold the port against the Moorish insurgents was a money draining problems.  There were many battles between the English Garrison of Tangiers and the Moors.  Eventually the garrison withdrew in the night and left the city to the Moors!

​Free Flags of what James 11, Monmouths flags and Williams111,did and could have looked like 

There is very little information about the flag flown by Monmouths forces.  There are a few references to 'Red regiments and Blue Regiments etc and Monmouths flag having 'Fear nothing but God', written on, but little else other than the number of flags being 27 and they were made at Taunton by young ladies at a school  The blue flag with three white 'pile wavys', labelled Monmouths blue regiment, but the story is that it was captured during the Sedgemoor campaign and remained in the possesion of the same family until recent years.  It may have been a rebel or a royal flag and still exists in a museum

The second batch of flags are for the army of James the second, except the yellow flag with three pile wavy which is a conjectional Monmouth colour

All flags designed, drawn and coloured by the amazing

Kev Ward.  More flags to come !

   

 

 

Flags used by the army of William 111, in England in 1688 and  against James 11, forces in Ireland 1689 to 1691
