Flodden, a village in Northumberland, 5 miles S.E. of Coldstream, chiefly notable as having been the scene of the noted battle in 1513, when the Earl of Surrey completely destroyed James IV. of Scotland and his army. Scott in Marmion, Aytoun in his Edinburgh after Flodden, and Lady Lindsay's Flowers of the Forest have commemorated the battle.
