One of the most popular uses of a flag is to symbolize a nation or country. Some national flags have been particularly inspirational to other nations, countries, or subnational entities in the design of their own flags. Some prominent examples include:
The flag of Scotland, called the Saltire or St Andrew's Cross, is believed to be the oldest national flag still in use. Notable flags which share the saltire design include the flag of Jamaica, the Confederate Naval Jack, the naval ensign and naval jack of Russia and the flag for the Canadian Province of Nova Scotia. It also forms a key part in the design of the Union Flag of the United Kingdom.
The flag of Denmark (My counry) is the oldest state flag still in use. This flag, called the Dannebrog, inspired the cross design of other Nordic countries. Examples: the Faroe Islands, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Åland.

I must point out that none of the examples you give were actually called flags when they were created. As you yourself point out, the "flag" of Scotland is called the "Saltire", not the "flag". Similarly, the Dannebrog was not called the "flag of Denmark". It was called the "Dannebrog". The name "flag" has since been retroactively applied to all such national banners.
