Capman Posted July 10, 2007 Share Posted July 10, 2007 Just clearing this up. The Union Jack, the flag that represents the United Kingdom or Great Britain: The St George, the flag that represents England: The St Andrews, the flag that represents Scotland: The original Union flag that combined the flags of England and Scotland: The St Patrick, the flag that represents Ireland: Which was eventually combined with the 2 flags already present in the Union flag, thus resulting in the Union Jack that can be seen at the top of this post. The three flags making the one: The Welsh flag is not included because they were already united with England when the first Union flag was created. These flags date back to between the 1100's and 1800's, and a newer flag might now be used by one of the countries mentioned. I personally choose the English flag rather than the Union Jack as a means of representation. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
