Football fans are being asked to vote on whether Flower of Scotland should be recognised as the country's official national anthem.

The Scottish Football Association (SFA) is running the poll allowing supporters to have their say after the question was raised at the Scottish Parliament's public petitions committee last month.

The Holyrood committee is considering a bid to have the song, written by the late Roy Williamson of The Corries in the 1960s, officially recognised as the national tune.

MSPs agreed to write to the Scottish Government to ask whether it would consider undertaking a consultation on an official national anthem for Scotland.

The SFA said after being asked for its view it believed the answer should come from "our most loyal fans" and opened up the online survey for members of the Scotland Supporters Club.

Views were also being sought from the Scottish Rugby Union and the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, which ran a 2006 poll that found 41% of people backed Flower of Scotland for the title.
