Flags of the Incorporated Trades
Representatives of the Incorporated Trades of Edinburgh carrying the flags of the town's individual trades after the Edinburgh Riding of the Marches ceremony at the mercat cross. They have a long and proud history which goes back to an act of parliament from the reign of James I.

The act from 1425, rendered in modern English, states that,

"It is ordained that in each town of the realm, of each different craft that is used therein, a wise man of that craft shall be chosen by the rest of the craft and in consultation with the officials of the town. He shall be called deacon or master-man over the rest, for the time assigned to him, to test and govern all work that is made by the workmen of his craft, so that the King's lieges will not be defrauded or harmed in time to come, as they have been in the past, by untrue craftsmen."
