Here's the other. I prefer the first.

That said, the second manages to incorporate part of St Patrick's saltire, and thus NI, while the first only covers E & W.

It starts to get messy, but you could throw Cornwall into the mix too:

Like Scandinavian/Nordic flags, the UK flag derives from the Christian cross which seems wholly inappropriate for Britian in this day and age so it will be a chance for a fundamental and secular redesign if Scotland secedes today [2014-09-18]. But this will of course make things tricky for places ranging from Hawaii to New Zealand.

Two proposals for Royal Standard:

1) Already shown in this topic:

2) With Ireland in more honorable position:

I would rather this. It incorporates Wales, in the form of St.David's Cross, and uses the correct lighter blue for the Scottish flag.
