  English 'see themselves as Brits'
Updated 23 April 2004, 06.42
Which flag are you loyal to?
Scottish and Welsh people are loyal to their own parts of the UK, but the English are more likely to consider themselves British, a survey has found.

In Scotland, 77% of people claim their main loyalty is to the blue and white of St Andrew. In Wales, 65% identify with the red, white and green flag.

In England, just 18% of people plumped for the red and white St George cross, with 69% preferring the Union Jack.

The results came out on St George's Day - 23 April. Wonder if anyone noticed?

The St George flag might not have been too popular among the 2,000 people questioned, but the European Union flag found even less support.

Just 3% of people said their main loyalty was to the 12 stars of the union, although this rose to 14% among Londoners.
