I know the Scottish Indepndence debate has been done to death on this forum, also considering the groundswell of opinions on both sides of the border, it may or may not happen eventuallly, next year after the Scottish election or never.

In such an eventuality, what would the fate of the Union Flag be ?

personally I would prefer to retain it so to represent history and the diversity of the population and "Britishness" the definition of which will remain the same after the Scots go their own way.
English and British has been interchangable when describing English people.

Should we keep it as it is or drop the cross of St Andrew saltaire from it, would make a funny looking flag, St Georges and St Patrick cross on white.

I would have doubts about using the St Georges cross in overseas operations as it looks too much like a Red Cross flag, instead use it for domestic purposes

not sure how it long it will be for the Welsh and the Northern Irish to follow suit, They will be following the Scottish Independence closely and how they cope afterward with interest.

Can't burn it. I heard it is going to be a criminal offence.

Perhaps it could be retained as the upper and inner quadrant (don't knowe the correct terminology) just so the Engerlish remember that they have been ruled by Scots for years.

Even the England cricket team (sorry MCC as it was then :cry: ) has been captained by several non-Englerlish, including several from north of the Border. Now they have decided not to have Scots in their team - look how well they are doing. 8)

Posting after 2100 should be banned for sweaties. They are all obviously in the pocket on jellies and Tennants by then. This mad rant proves it..

Don't confuse this tired old fella with people who can afford jellies and Tennants. Those that can are all firmly ensconsed in front of their stolen TVs. AY, is out there in the cold huddled up in the doorway of PC World, with his bottle of meths, shouting at passing busses. It's a shame.

Nooooooooooooo!
Keep the Union Jack the same & don't change it!

Number 1. Anyone see a slight similarity with the US Flag? Wait till old Georgey boy see's this, he'll make some surggestions to Tony, like putting several stars in the top left corner for a start ............

Number 2. If the good old Union Flag was changed, I'd have to take all my '95 kit into the tailoresses to get all the b###dy badges changed. do you know how hard it is to get her to put them on in the right place? it usualy takes 2 or 3 visits till she gets it right . :)

Running round the Middle East with the St George Cross flying now there's a way to capture the hearts and minds of the locals...................

May prove to be of advantage if all our veh have them on the side though, even though I'm sure its against the Geneva Convention to pretend your an ambulance.

Either way not too worried as will be other side of the Border (I'm an undercover Jock) or getting paid a mercenaries wage in the English Foriegn Legion des etranges or similar............................. :p :p :roll:

one other thought had occured to me, if we do change our flags, will the former colonies change the Union Flags in the upper quadrant if it is dropped ? like Australia and New Zealand etc

possibly one case for retaining it is our links with the other colonies.

We could always go back to the original English flag of a white dragon on a black backround :idea:

leave the flag as it is and change the government from muppets to real people, many brave men have fallen under these colours with no one asking if they were english,scottish welsh or irish.
Changing things for the sake of it on a politicians whim can only lead to tears, if you dont believe me just look at the supreme leaders new NHS, police, jails ect

What a strage debate?
From just where did there spring the idea that Jock independence would ever be a runner - B.liar gave his opinion and strangely enough I thought it well said despite how much I hate and despise the cnut. Just look at what they have managed so far - their Parliament which looks like a modernistic zoo. Study the level of debate. Look at the sort of thing that gets elected - you may have to go to a dodgy strip club for that. I seem to remember the devolution vote was something like 51% in favour; they would not get two thirds of that if they re-ran that.
So - rest assured. No bastardised Stars & Stripes or beach towels for us.
