Early on in the Union, British identity was created as a means to unite the UK under a common nationality. Its utility has since faded, with the English now considering themselves the most 'British' in the UK. While many in Scotland nominally identify with a British Identity, only 11 percent identify it as their dominant identity.
Scotland has had a clear trajectory moving away from the Union, with devolution signaling a significant shift towards a more autonomous Scotland.
With a close independence referendum result 2014, and another vote likely to occur in the next few years, the country has been unequivocal in distinguishing itself from the rest of the UK.
