George Square on the night after the independence referendum :: Shared Description

Crowds of "Yes" and "No" supporters gathered in the square on Friday evening following the announcement of the historic Scottish independence referendum result. According to news reports, the atmosphere had been friendly until police had to move in briefly to separate opposing supporters after a group of Union Jack waving "No" supporters rushed into the square. Police made fifteen arrests on the night and at the time of writing (22nd September) a further six arrests had been made with the promise of more to follow.

The BBC News web site reported "...confrontation started quickly with flares being fired and a "co-ordinated" charge from the Unionist side, who were singing Rule Britannia.

Some of the pro-Union side were carrying banners featuring Loyalist imagery."

By the time these photos were taken (around 9:30pm), everything was calm and both groups of supporters were mingling again.
