Marrakech - The flag of the United Kingdom may be in danger of disappearing, according to the BBC. The British news outlet recently aired a program on Scottish independence with presenter Andrew Neil. The consequence of a ‘yes’ vote for Scottish independence in a referendum to be held on 18 September would be far reaching. It would open the question of the British nuclear deterrent of four Vanguard submarines and 58 Trident nuclear based missiles at Faslane, in Scotland.
