|Created by Smiths of Peterhead Limited (established 1738) to increase Peterhead's identity. It is under the Design Act at this date September 2006.
The Blue Mogganers is the name given, from the Doric, to the people of Peterhead due to the fisher folk wearing blue clothing and coarse blue stockings over their sea boots. Hence the tartan background colour. The white is for the white fish landings, the pink is for the pink granite of the town's buildings and gold for the sunrise on Peterhead, Scotland's most easterly point.
