Let's have a Scottish version of Union flag, says historian
The Union flag, which is designed in 1606, originally flew in Scotland with the cross of St Andrew on top of the cross of St George.
It was later altered so the red St George's Cross would dominate the Saltire.
Historian David Ross is now demanding that the Scottish Parliament and other buildings where the flag is flown should restore the design with the Saltire on top.
Mr Ross, who is also the convener of the Society of William Wallace, said: "I wince every time I see the Union Flag. It is a flag of imperialism.
