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

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.
