65% think the Union Flag should change if Scotland leaves

Almost 65% of people responding to a recent Flag Institute survey think the Union Flag SHOULD change if Scotland becomes independent.

The Scottish Government intends to hold a referendum of the Scottish electorate, on the issue of independence from the United Kingdom, on Thursday 18 September 2014. The question
asked in the referendum will be “Should Scotland be an independent country?”

As the UK’s National Flag Charity the Flag Institute has been inviting its members and others to express their views on how a successful independence vote could (and should) affect the flag of the United Kingdom.

The issue of changing the design of our flag is a difficult one, and some of the survey results are surprising.
