The Saltire Compromised – Colour in Dare Day 3

As a Scottish person I should have stopped at the wearing blue and white today without the addition of these:

Urban Sole Red Leather Criss Cross Stilettos| DVB White Jeans

The Saltire (or St Andrews Cross) is the Scottish flag.  Scottish people bitterly object to the additional colours and stripes that turn the Saltire into the Union Jack namely the St George’s Cross

and the St Patrick’s Cross.

Since I am half American and half Scottish, I do not feel that wearing red, white and blue turns me into a Saltire antagonist particularly as I don’t look much like a flag.  As I write this I am looking around sheepishly for the ferociously patriotic Scott Rhodie of Kilt for Hire to remonstrate with me.

Then there is the sound of my Scottish Nationalist gran having a go at me from beyond the grave when I cast my beady little shoe obsessed eyes on the following Union shoes:

8 Hole Dr Martens Union Jack boots

Irregular Choice Union Jack Patty pumps (vegan friendly)

and last but not least:
