How is using the England flag contributing to that? With that logic wouldn't it be worse using the UK flag and forcing Scotland to be under the same flag as England? For example English people like to claim sportsmen like Andy Murray in the past, saying he's got UK flag so he's a part of us even if he doesn't want to be. I don't want to do that, I'll support Scotsmen but not under some pretence that they belong to us.
No shame in using England flag, look at England cricket, rugby, football.. are you going to force them to merge with Scottish/Welsh players and be "UK" team instead? We should encourage each other to be proud in our identities, while also being friendly with each other.. that's what I'm trying to get at. We both hate the government for their shit too..
