Stolen Scottish flag honored lost love

Ed Safford flew a Scottish royal banner at his home in Bristol, Rhode Island, as a tribute to his wife of 25 years. Nancy, who was of Scottish descent, died last August. The flag was stolen from its bracket on the front of Mr. Safford's house on June 9. "That flag was a symbol of our love," he said.

    To honor her, Mr. Safford decided shortly after her death to fly a flag that not only would have meant a lot to his wife, as she was mostly Scottish, but to him as well. His father collected flags and growing up, he had an appreciation for other nations' flags, he said.
