We study the behavior of the confining flux tube in Nf = 2 + 1 QCD at the physical point, discretized with the stout smearing improved staggered quark action and the tree level Symazik gauge action. We discuss how it depends on a uniform external magnetic field, showing how it displays anisotropies with respect to the magnetic field direction. Moreover, we compare the observed anisotropy pattern with that of the static quark-antiquark (QQ̅) potential we obtained in [1, 2].
