The Reformed Presbyterian Church of Scotland is also known as Covenanters and
Cameronians. Rev. John McMillan was their leader in the mid-1700s and in some
parts of Scotland members of the RPC are apparently still known as McMillanites.

I don't know if the RPC in Scotland has an official flag but the RPC of
Ireland at least has a flagoid logo- see
http://www.rpc.org/, as does the RPC of North America [not to be confused
with the RPC in the United States], see:
Its slogan, "For Christ's Crown and Covenant" is based on old Covenanters'
battle flags [see
http://www.reformed.com/banner.htm for a brief explanation]. The flagoid
logo is also used by the Reformed Presbyterian Church (Covenanted) [I don't know
if they are the actual RPC Scotland or just a splinter group] See

The Reformed Presbyterian Church of Australia seems to use the banner of the
Reformed Presbyterian Church of North America without any separate national
distinguishing mark. The article on this church on Wikipedia,
illustrated with what might be termed the general RPC banner, but an enlargement
of the illustration identifies it as the RPCNA banner. I would therefore suggest
that this flagoid might well be described as the flag of the Reformed
Presbyterian Churches in general, or at least most of them.

Much more convincing is the fact that the RPCA's website (http://www.rpca.org.au)
displays an image of this banner-logo. The banner seems to be generally referred
to (both in Australia and North America) simply as "the blue banner". One of the
many Presbyterian denominations in Australia, with origins in a links to
churches known as the Reformed Presbyterian Church in other countries, the RPCA
consists of two congregations, one in Geelong, and one in south east Melbourne.
