The Scottish saltire flag is seen refracted through raindrops as it flutters in the wind at the border between England and Scotland at Carter Bar September 6, 2013. Carter Bar is on the border between England and Scotland in the Cheviot Hills. It is also the site of the Raid of the Redeswire, a 1575 clash between English and Scots commemorated in a Border ballad. Signs of ancient conflict - from centuries-old fortifications to historic battlefields - score the landscape around the English-Scottish border. But many living in the region lead lives straddling both sides, and express practical concerns about the possibility of a more formal split between the two nations in the event of a yes vote in next year's referendum on Scottish independence, which will be held on September 18, 2014.
