The Senyeras, the Catalan flags, still hang on many windows in Edinburgh and Glasgow. On the street, some wear a "Si" pin. Most of them are supporters of the Scottish National Party (SNP), the party of Scottish head of government Nicola Sturgeon. They are expressing their solidarity with the Catalans because they hope for a boost for their own country’s independence.
