Flying the Flag

In case anyone is wondering the flag on my posts is the Scottish saltire. I replaced the union jack, the flag of the UK for the saltire as it is the national flag of Scotland.

The UK is not, as many people believe a country but is in fact a union of 3 countries, Scotland, England and Wales, 4 if you count Northern Ireland…but let’s not get into that.

I followed the instructions on the B2Evolution site to change the language files on a blog but as there is no ISO code for the Scottish flag I just swaped it for the uk flag. Although the saltire or St. Andrew’s Cross is the national flag of Scotland there is in fact another Scottish flag, the royal standard or lion rampant.

Apart from the national identity thing I just think the saltire is a nicer flag than the union jack.
