The Union Jack
The Union Jack, or Union Flag, is the national flag of the United Kingdom. The flag also has an official or semi-official status in some other Commonwealth realms; for example, it is, by law, an official flag in Canada and known there as the Royal Union Flag. Further, it is used as an official flag in some of the smaller British overseas territories. The Union Jack also appears in the canton (upper left-hand quarter) of the flags of several nations and territories. These countries are former British possessions or dominions.
The origins of the earlier flag of Great Britain date back to 1606. James VI of Scotland had inherited the English and Irish thrones in 1603. As James I, he began uniting the crowns of England, Scotland, and Ireland in a personal union. Although the three kingdoms remained separate states. On 12 April 1606, by royal decree, a new flag came to be to representing England and Scotland. The flag of England (a red cross on a white background, known as St George’s Cross), and the flag of Scotland (a white saltire on a blue background, known as the Saltire or St Andrew’s Cross), would be joined together. King James also began to refer to a “Kingdom of Great Britaine,” although the union remained a personal one.
The present design of the Union Flag dates from a Royal proclamation in 1801. The flag combines aspects of three older national flags to include the red saltire of St Patrick to represent Ireland.
Notably, the Union Jack, indirectly represents Wales through the flag of England because the former Kingdom of England includes Wales.
