“Scotland decides,” declares the headline on The Times (Scottish edition), referring to “nerves and excitement as the big day dawns”.

The Guardian points out that the map of Britain could be redrawn, calling it a “Day of Destiny”, with a picture that shows Scotland in green with the rest of the UK a faded blue.

The Independent has a silhouetted hand holding the flags of both Scotland and the UK, invoking a theme of unity, along with the headline, “The 307-year itch”.

Others openly call for a No vote, with the Daily Mirror showing a bare-looking Union flag without Scotland’s Saint Andrew’s Cross and writing, “Don’t leave us this way.”
