From ethnic festivals to teachers' conferences, it seems like everyone's interested in smALL FLAGs. Labor Day weekend we were at the 27th Annual All British Field Meet. Just a heck of a lot of fun. Which makes us think of the following:

Tidbits Regarding :


The Cross of St George for England + The Cross of St Andrew for Scotland + The Cross of St Patrick for Northern Ireland


The Union Jack

Remember, the official name for this country is "The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland". In January of 1801, the flags of St George (for England), St Andrew (for Scotland) and St Patrick (for Northern Ireland) were combined to form what is now known as the "Union Jack". Notice that there's more white of St Andrew's above the red of St Patrick on the left and more below it on the right of the flag. This shows respect for the fact that Scotland was an earlier member of the UK than Northern Ireland. There's lots more history to this than we can relate here, but it may give you an incentive to do a little research on your own.

Please recall that we have over 250 different flags in stock in many sizes and remember when ordering a flag of "England" to distinguish it from the flag of the UK.
