Flodden Scots Flags - The Earl Marischal

For this post I've re-visited a flag I previously made and posted Link. The flag is that of Lord Robert Keith, Earl of Marischal who fought for the Scots during the Battle of Flodden.

The first flag is another rendition of a flag pictured in, Military Modelling 1882 Manual, this is the first time I've seen this flag in these colours, so I thought I'd give it a go, I'm very pleased with the results.
As you can see I've remade the yellow flag, this time I've turned the obverse side around so the writing is not backwards and I've kept the 3 deer heads facing the same way as I have with the first flag in this post. There was a conversation on TMP here's a , Link,  about the obverse side of the flag, if they would be the same as the front of the flag or a mirror image. In the post I went with a mirror image, but I think from a wargames purpose they look better this way??
I'm not 100% sure which flag was used or which flag I'm going to use for my Scots army.
Hope you like the new versions, and please use them for your armies....if you want.
Comments welcome and appreiated!!
