The Historic border town of Selkirk has many associations with Flodden both past and present. Ecomuseum site Halliwell’s House Museum has displays relating to the border reiving and also to Flodden. These include two artefacts that have the firmest provenance of such items, a sword and the Macclesfield Banner.
The Fletcher Monument is a bronze statue of an armour clad figure (Fletcher) carrying that banner. It was erected in 1913. This statue commemorates the return to the town of the only survivor of 80 Selkirk men who joined James IV at the Battle of Flodden. Fletcher is said to have returned with a banner captured from the English and in his exhaustion and despair to have cast it to the ground. The market place is said to be where Fletcher returned to and collapsed after the battle and it is where each summer this poignant aspect of the Flodden story is commemorated at the Selkirk Common Riding, in which the Casting of the Colours by the Standard Bearer, followed by a two minute silence, is a principal and solemn moment. Halliwell's House is also located in the Market Place.
