The flag of Scotland, I presume?
Why do some Scots feel strongly about this? To me, this is like the silly "neo-Confederates" who want to leave the grand Union for a stub.
Why make yourself weaker?

The Cross of St. Andrews, one of the Scottish flags.
I think it's a throwback to the days of Bonnie Prince Charlie, which you can read about here

The Scottish flag is flown at many sports matches. Remember, in rugby (particularly) the Four nations (England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales) is one of the premier competitions.
Having your own flag is something to be proud of, friend.

Scotland is a country with its own history. Its independence was sold in a game of Royal Succession where James VI of Scotland became James I of England.
The 13 Colonies were liberated as a nation. The 13 origional states never existed as independent countries. None had their own languages or thousands+ year histories.
