Scottish Elections – No Thanks

I was super lucky to have been in Scotland during their recent independence elections.  While many people commented that it had become quite a vicious argument, I (as an American) was surprised at how pleasant everyone was.  You would never see a display of posters arguing both perspectives hanging out together as I did in Kirkudbright.

The iconography was also fascinating.  We were mainly in the north so most of the signs and stickers we saw were for Yes, but there was a fair amount of No in Edinburgh and Glasgow.  Since I’m still sorting through my 100+ Yes pictures, here are some of my favorite No options.  (There were several versions of the UK flag/Uncle Sam/Queen sticker below including a Harry Potter one).
