The end of Union Jack?
If there is a second referendum , and that Scotland was about to leave the Union Jack. There is a high probability that Wales and Northern Ireland would follow in the coming years. Indeed England has always opposed that any of this nation leave the Union , but if Scotland bid for independance works , it would means that Union Jack is no longer relevant and that the historical connections between the British People has been transcended by a European Idendity symbolized by the EU. Additionally these nations feel much more closer to Europeans than to the Americans. England has always been traditionally very close from the Americans , and after they left Europe they will seek to negotiatiate a Strong Partnership with the Americans.
