UK Government to Mark Its Projects in Scotland With Union Jack Flag

Relations between the constituent countries of the UK (especially between Scotland and England) have been strained since the Brexit referendum, becoming more sensitive recently amid disagreements over pandemic restrictions.

All major projects in Scotland funded directly by the UK government will be stamped with the Union Jack — the UK’s national flag — starting next year, The Telegraph reported, citing Conservative politicians.

According to Scottish Conservative leader Douglas Ross, the flag will be used instead of the EU symbol when denoting a bridge or a road funded by the central government, showing a «visual connection» between London and its investments in Scotland.

«We should be unashamed of our direct investment in communities across Scotland… We will see that, through the shared prosperity fund, that is the money that the EU used to earmark for projects in Scotland and other parts of the UK», Ross told The Telegraph on the Chopper’s Politics podcast.
