The Union Jack is the national flag of the United Kingdon of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. The design of the Union Jack combines aspects of three older national flags: the red cross of St George of England, the white saltire of St Andrew for Scotland and the red saltire of St Patrick to represent Ireland. Wales, despite also being part of the Union, has never been represented on the flag. Photo: allaboutyou.com
