The reputation of the Scottish people...

At work today we were looking for the exact (Pantone) colour specification for the Scottish Flag, a quick Google search and it flagged up the entry for the Flag of Scotland in Wikipedia, there are some interesting facts about the flag:

What really me laugh was that it says the colour of blue used has changed at times from anywhere in between sky blue to dark navy blue, apparently this was "a selection apparently motivated by which colour of blue dye was cheapest at the time" !!!

The Scots do have a reputation for being thrifty so that confirms it!
