The Battle of Prestonpans Tapestry will go on display alongside the Bayeux Tapestry in France.
Currently on display at St Mary’s Cathedral in Edinburgh, the Prestonpans Tapestry shows the 1745 journey of Bonnie Prince Charlie from his landing in Eriskay to his victory in Prestonpans.
It was finished in 2010 after 25,000 hours of work by 200 volunteers.
Last summer, a councillor from Bayeux in Normandy saw the tapestry and arranged for it to travel to be shown alongside its French counterpart.
The Bayeux Tapestry was made in the 11th century and depicts events leading up to the Norman conquest of England, including the Battle of Hastings in 1066.
Gareth Jones, chairman of the Battle of Prestonpans Heritage Trust, said: "We are delighted and honoured that our tapestry has been invited to Bayeux. Our project was inspired entirely by the Bayeux Tapestry which our past chairman, Dr Prestoungrange, had visited many times.
"We were looking for ways to raise the profile of the battle and bring the story to life for future generations and that is exactly what the Bayeux Tapestry has done since the 11th century."
Cabinet Secretary, Fiona Hyslop, said: "I am delighted that the tapestry depicting the Battle of Prestonpans has been requested to be displayed in the Museé de la Tapisserie de Bayeux.
"I have been greatly impressed by the level of Scottish craftsmanship shown in its creation and the way it brings Scotland's history and heritage to life."
