Renfrewshire flags part III

I've received a further proposal for a flag of Renfrewshire from the Twittersphere. User @SussaxonBrady has come up with this design, using a bold colour scheme and incorporating a saltire.

 As with the previous proposal covered here, and the Renfrewshire Council flag, this incorporates two main motifs: the boat, representing the nautical tradition of the shire, and the arms of the royal house of Stewart, once based in the area.

Another flag of Renfrewshire

As part of their promotion of the "traditional" counties of the UK, the Association of British Counties (revelling in the initialism ABC) has developed a website of existing and proposed county flag designs. The above is one Philip Tibbetts's proposal for a county flag for Renfrewshire

United Kingdom, United Future

Read the UK Government's report United Kingdom: United Future

The Scotland Analysis papers are undoubtedly the most detailed examinations ever conducted of how Scotland is governed and the advantages it gains from being part of the United Kingdom. This is the summary and conclusions.

The Kilmacolm Institute

Kilmacolm's 19th century Village Institute, derelict since the creation of the the Cargill Centre, is due to be demolished and replaced. A current planning proposal for this centrepiece lot at the village cross would see the construction of thirteen flats, with two retail units below.

Marischal Square, Aberdeen

FOLLOWING the (partial) cleaning of Aberdeen's magnificent Marischal College building, attention turned swiftly to its neighbour, the former council offices at St Nicholas House. A looming 1960s concrete-and-glass throw-up, St Nicholas was rendered obsolete as council officials decanted into the college.

Now virtually demolished, planners have examined ways to turn the area into a civic space. Initial pictures of the development have now been released. A few shortlisted designs were produced last year.
