Flower of Scotland (Skotsk-gælisk: Flùr na h-Alba) er en av Skottlands uoffisielle nasjonalsanger. I likhet med England har heller ikke Skottland noen offisiell nasjonalhymne, men Flower of Scotland benyttes som nasjonens fremste sang sammen med Scotland the Brave. Flower of Scotland ble skrevet av Roy Williamson i 1967. Sangen viser til en militær skotsk seier over den engelske kong Edvard II. Slaget ved Bannockburn i 1314 ble ledet av skottenes konge, Robert Bruce, som ifølge sangteksten sendte Edvards hær hjem til England for å tenke seg om.

O Flower of Scotland 
When will we see 
Your like again, 
That fought and died for 
Your wee bit Hill and Glen 
And stood against him 
Proud Edward's Army, 
And sent him homeward 
Tae think again. 

The Hills are bare now 
And Autumn leaves lie thick and still 
O'er land that is lost now 
Which those so dearly held
That stood against him 
Proud Edward's Army 
And sent him homeward 
Tae think again. 

Those days are past now 
And in the past they must remain 
But we can still rise now 
And be the nation again 
That stood against him 
Proud Edward's Army 
And sent him homeward, 
Tae think again. 

O Flower of Scotland 
When will we see 
Your like again, 
That fought and died for 
Your wee bit Hill and Glen 
And stood against him 
Proud Edward's Army, 
And sent him homeward 
Tae think again.
