The Scottish flag - how blue should it be ?

The Scottish flag - the oldest national flag in Europe - is the only one in the world in which the background colours vary, the Scottish Parliament has been told.

A petition from a member of the public alleges the Saltire is being devalued by the different colours of blue used in the background.

In a letter to the Public Petitions Committee, George Reid, of Edinburgh, said the background of the Scottish flag should be sky blue. Mr Reid said this was because of its origins, dating back to an 832AD battle fought at Athelstaneford, in East Lothian, when the Picts under Angus mac Fergus defeated a larger force of Angles and Saxons.

"Fearful of the outcome, King Angus led prayers for deliverance and was rewarded by seeing a cloud formation of a white Saltire - the diagonal cross against which Saint Andrew had been martyred - against a clear blue sky," writes Mr Reid.

view accepted by Scottish ministers.

He called on the parliament to "remove variations

which must be as puzzling to many outside Scotland as

they are infuriating to many who live here".

He also urged MSPs to encourage the flying of the

national flag, which he believed to be the world's
