Yet another referendum on Scottish independence is coming up. If it passes, will the UK change their flag? Will the blue and white diagonal Cross of St. Andrew be removed, leaving only the red and white Cross of Saint George and the red-and-white Cross of Saint Patrick?
There’s a case to be made that there is no need to, since the Union Flag (and its naval equivalent, the Union Jack) represents the union of the British and Scottish royal families, which are still well and thoroughly entwined.
A red-and-white flag seems to be the most popular design, but it seems a bit dull to me. I prefer the idea of incorporating the black and/or the yellow of the Welsh Cross of Saint David, myself.
