As reported widely, the Union Jack that we all know fondly and has been our national flag in its current format for over 200 years could be changing if Scotland votes yes on Thursday.
VMAL a london based design agency has been entrusted the task of redesigning the Union Jack for post-independence Scotland if that happens.
Ok only joking!, but here are some versions amongst them some serious contenders:
This version is the one we know and recognise, and have had since 1801
This version is leaves out the St Andrews a white diagonal “Saltire” cross on a blue background and replaces the white background with a navy blue to contrast with the royal blue thereby keeping the original iconic shape of the flag but in effect removing the St Andrews flag.
This version also leaves out the St Andrews cross and replaces the entire white and Royal blue background so that there is no remanant of the St Andrews cross.
This version is a very likely contender as it leaves out St Andrews cross and keeps the white coloured background of the St George’s and St Patrick’s Crosses.
In the next versions we retain the iconic shape of the three crosses but in order not to represent Scotland we have changed the complete colour scheme:
This version is in classic racing green reminiscent of Britain’s great motor history and a homage to Ireland’s national colour. This version of the Union Jack is similar to ones emblazoned on the roof of Foxton’s Fleet of Minis!
This version is my favorite! The colour of England’s Crosses are red, and orange is a softer red, besides looking nice and retro!
This version is a very nice compromise as purple is a cross between red and blue of the orginal flag.
This version is a post-ISIS version that we created to future proof the flag since they aim to rule the world. ( I hope I am joking …)
