Scotland is a participating country, Scotland is a participating nation, Hampden Park is Scotland's National Stadium and we say our national flag should fly over our stadium, WHATEVER the event being held.

      I will close this petition on July 23rd as previously planned in order to ensure we are prepared should there be any about turn on the decision to allow the Saltire it's place at Hampden. This is not expected, but I think it's better to be prepared for any eventuality.

      Please continue to encourage others to sign in support.

      Many thanks to all for your efforts.

      Jock Campbell.

      News reports confirm that the Olympic committee has seen sense and will ensure the Saltire flies over Hampden Park this summer!

      Scottish MSP ‎Irfan Rabbani has intimated that it seems that the Olympic committee have relented over the Flying of the Saltire - this is uncorroberated and I'm trying to check it out. Will let you know.

      To remove the flag is not only an insult to Scotland but to the millions of Scot descendants worldwide. Wherever we may live or roam Scotland is still 'oor hame.'

      Because I agree that the Saltire should be flown in Scotland at all events; & object VERY strongly to its being proscribed!

      Cultural genocide, in the fine old post 1745 tradition?? Britain rules OK? No!
