Should Scotland have its own national anthem?

God Save The King is the de facto national anthem of the UK and most of the Commonwealth, and has been since the beginning of the nineteenth century. It originated as patriotic song first publicly performed in London in 1745.

At international sports matches it is sung by England as their national anthem, while the Scots team sings Flower of Scotland and the Welsh sing Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau, Land of My Fathers.
