If, as seems likely, Scotland and Northern Ireland break away from the UK the Union as we know it will be gone and Britain as we know it will know longer exist.

What will remain is a pared down version consisting only of England in Wales and it'll need a new flag because the Union (which no longer exists) Flag

has elements in it representing Ireland

and Scotland.

If we remove these and factor in something to represent Wales (strangely omitted at present) we are left with:

This rather fussy. A simpler riff on the same theme:

I quite like this one but the dragon is the wrong colour so the heraldry is all wrong:

With the dragon the right colour:

Or maybe:

Which one would we like?

Or any other suggestions?

I think I prefer this. It will sort of reflect our 51st state status. After all, we do need to belong to something.

The perfect flag for Airstrip One. I'm a bit worried about Eurasia though. Let's get 'em. COYRWB !

I have never liked blue in a flag. I know it represents the sea for many, but I see it as purloined by the royal/establishment bunch. It has also become the colour of choice for a certain sort of football club in these islands, as in Rangers/Celtic and Everton/Liverpool.

Fascinating subject, colour. Deeply significant from emotions to chakras. The christian influence has had a big effect on flag colours, and they have sadly seen to virtually getting rid of the colour black. I like black in my flag of perceived identity, and fortunately, I have it. The Bretons have it as well, and is one of my favourite flags

Where would the Welsh part of that be?

Besides England has a flag already... So far as I know England/Wales does not.

It isn't - as I'm sure you know. This is a chance to put that right.

I'm not sure why not. Is it because we English defeated them millitarily whereas the others were brought into the Union voluntarily?

Have to admit I'm guessing.

What's bought on this sudden sense of nationalism then? Anyway it's the stars were losing not Scotland, they had their vote and decided to stay with us.

They won't next time.

And the mandate to have a second referendum is there in the SNP manifesto from the last election.

Scotland is still with us in exactly the same way we are still with the EU.

Here's Jimmy Brent's flag. He's good at creating and presiding over disunity. It could work for the  UK, it's got a lion and everything. A bit of ironic gold too.
