What should the Union Flag look like if Scotland votes to leave the UK on Thursday?
According to The Flag Institute, if there is a yes vote in the Scottish independence referendum, it would be highly likely that there would be calls for the UK flag to be redesigned.
“[It would be] inconceivable that the citizens of the remainder of the UK would want to be represented by a flag that is one third Scots,” said Charles Ashburner, The Flag Institute’s chief executive.
This got us thinking. Who better to imagine a new UK flag than the creative industry?
So in a special Tight Briefs creative challenge, we want you to design an alternative UK flag without Scotland in it.
As ever with our Tight Briefs challenges, there’s a tight deadline. Send your flag ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org, or to @thedrum on Twitter using the hashtag #tightbriefs, by 5pm on Tuesday and we’ll run them online this week.
The creator of the best flag, as chosen by our readers, will receive a free one year’s subscription to The Drum.
