    It does depend a lot on whether this really is a fake heraldic crest, or just a badge.
    To be honest I'm surprised the football team can't fight back against that - I thought the college of arms is largely a historical curio nowadays.

    Do many English band crests have anything that could be construed as a national flag device on them? I don't think I've ever noticed any. The Scottish flag is much more popularly displayed in Scotland than the English flag or Union Jack are in England.

    Doubt it - the English are generally less insecure about stuff like that (don't know why).
    My nearest nationalist band has opted for the more cost-effective plain black shirt option, anyway.
