The Union flag and the Saltire are flown every day from the Office of the Secretary of State for Scotland’s building in London. Exceptions are sometimes made at the direction of the Ceremonials Team at the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport - for example, the Armed Forces flag is flown on Armed Forces Day.
