Harrogate Borough Council will fly Scotland’s Saltire flag at its Crescent Gardens offices from this week.

The council is joining other authorities across England in flying the Saltire to urge Scots to vote ‘no’ in the Independence Referendum on Thursday, September 18.

Scots will vote yes or no to the question: “Should Scotland be an independent country?”

Coun Richard Cooper, Leader of Harrogate Borough Council said: “I am sure I speak on behalf of all councillors when I say that we want Scotland to remain part of the United Kingdom.

“We have the honour of an Arbroath man as our Mayor.

“Jim Clark’s activity as a Scottish First Citizen of our English Borough reminds all of us on a daily basis of our shared history and the value of a shared future.”
