What should the British flag look like if Scotland goes independent?

Quote
The UK's national flag charity has released a series of possible designs for use if Scotland votes for independence. The new flags, designed by the public and members of the Flag Institute, are intended 'to facilitate and inform the debate' on whether the flag would have to change. Which one gets your vote?

The different choices -that you can see in the poll above- are explained here. An extract:

Quote
http://The Flag Institute, the U.K.'s national flag charity and the largest membership-based vexillological organization in the world, recently polled its members and found that nearly 65 percent of respondents felt the Union Jack should be changed if Scotland becomes independent. And after the poll, the organization found itself flooded with suggested replacements for the flag.

"We are not advocating changing the flag. We are not advising changing the flag. We are not encouraging a change to the flag. We are not discouraging a change to the flag," Charles Ashburner, the Flag Institute's chief executive and trustee, told me. "We are simply simply here to facilitate and inform the debate if there is an appetite for such a thing."

I hope coffejohn doesn't mind a little non-vinculant pan-European poll on this topic ;)
