"THE SNP has come under fire for digitally altering a photograph on a Scottish tourism website to show a Saltire rather than a Union Flag. A photograph on the Scottish Government's Homecoming Scotland website of the British flag flying at Edinburgh Castle was reportedly changed to show a Saltire in its place.Royal British Legion Scotland described the move as an "insult" to Scottish war heroes."

Despite the denials of the Scottish Government the whole thing does smack of pettiness. Welcome back to the best wee country in the world where every flag is a saltire ... even if it wasn't originally.
