“The National symbols of the United Kingdom”
Union Jack is the popular name given to the flag of the United Kingdom. Usually it is called the Union Flag and it consists of several flags. It is the combination of the crosses of the patron saints of England, Ireland and Scotland and has existed in its present form since 1801.
It all began in 1603, when Scotland was joined to England and Wales. The Scottish flag, St. Andrew’s Cross, blue with a white cross from corner to corner, was joined to the English flag, St. George’s Cross, white with a red cross. The flag of St. George can still be seen on churches in England today. Later, in 1801, the Irish flag of St. Patrick’s Cross was added, white with a red cross from corner to corner.
In this way the British people got the Union Flag, which is red, white and blue.
