In our city the torch was carried by celebrities including actor James McAvoy, Olympic curling champion Rhona Martin and other torchbearers who had been nominated by the public.
What was fantastic to see was the enthusiasm of the crowds and the reception that all torchbearers, not just those who are famous names, received.
These torchbearers were given this honour in recognition of their personal achievements or contribution to their local communities, and their dedication was rewarded by the thousands of fellow Scots who lined the streets to cheer them on their way.
More than 16,000 people turned out in George Square to welcome the flame and be entertained by a special Olympic concert featuring Eliza Doolittle and Emeli Sande.
After visiting our city, the flame embarked on a 170 mile journey via 92 torchbearers from Glasgow to Inverness.
Lining the streets of Glasgow and cities across our country were masses of Saltires and Union Flags.
All waving side by side, with many families and children flying both, enjoying their day and looking forward to the fantastic festival of sport which will begin in little under 39 days.
In just over a month many Scots, including from our own city, will compete against the very best athletes to win gold and the glory of not just being the best in the UK at their chosen sport but the best in the world.
It has even been remarked to me that at the very least, it will provide a welcome distraction from the lack of Saltires in Polish and Ukrainian cities for this month's European Football Championships.
It has been great to see the excitement building across Scotland.
The Olympic spirit and the crowds we have seen are a fantastic demonstration of how our various identities, Glaswegian, Scottish and British can exist side by side, enriching our culture rather than dividing or suppressing it.
The fact that those who lined our streets will enthusiastically cheer on all our athletes, regardless of their birthplace, shows that to choose exclusively between being Scottish and British is a false choice.
That is why in the upcoming referendum I will not be challenging anyone's decision to attach themselves to any one identity and I hope that others will afford me the same courtesy.
I passionately believe that Scotland is better placed within the UK, and that 300 years of shared history and prosperity proves this; but I won't question the patriotism of anyone who does not share my belief.
I have no doubt that all Scots who will cheer Team GB next month love Scotland and I hope that our athletes – Scots, Welsh, Northern Irish or English – bring home the medals.
