The border of the circle is red satin. The centre bears the Scottish royal crest of red lion rampant on a yellow background with a crown above. The outlines of the circle, arms of the saltire, inner shield and crown, and wording (CALEDONIAN CHALLENGE SHIELD 1909) are worked in metal thread, with highlights in several colours.
