Thousands of people have taken to the streets of Edinburgh in one of the largest pro-independence marches the city has seen.
The Meadows was a sea of saltire and lion rampant flags as people from all over the country gathered for the march supporting a yes vote in the 2014 referendum.
SNP leader Alex Salmond is among around 20 speakers who will address the crowd later in Princes Street Gardens.
Many people attending the rally said they would not have supported independence a year ago but had changed their minds.
June Sutherland, 64, from Broxburn in West Lothian, said: "The reason for me changing my mind is the UK Government. They're shutting down all the air bases. Once they started hitting our soldiers and our airmen, that was enough for me. I didn't expect the turnout today. I'm proud to be here."
