A couple of points with regard to the referendum the Scottish Nationalists want to hold, to decide whether or not they want to stay in this relationship with us. Firstly, shouldn’t we also have a referendum in the rest of the UK to decide whether we want to keep them? Nobody likes to be taken for granted. Even if they do decide to stay, we might want them to go!
Secondly, if they do go we’ll need to clear out all their stuff, including untagging all their photos in Facebook and removing the cross of St Andrew from our flag. So while we’re doing a redesign, why not take the opportunity to include something from the loyal and unappreciated Welsh? Here’s my proposal for the new Union Flag. I know it doesn’t look right yet, but maybe that’s just because it’s new?
