The longer answer, is that the flag has a few different names, and quite a history. The Union Flag, also known as the Union Jack, or the Royal Union Flag in certain Commonwealth countries, has been the official flag of the UK since 1603 when James VI of Scotland inherited the English and Irish thrones, and became James I.
A new flag was created to represent the new union of England and Wales with Scotland, combining the red cross on white background of the flag of England, and the white saltire on a blue background as the flag of Scotland. The red saltire of St. Patrick’s flag was also added, and thus the Union Flag was born, and became the first flag of the UK.
Our method of using hand-sewn materials have been – and continue to be – the highest quality way to manufacture a national flag. The material we use is 155gsm woven fabric, giving excellent durability and a look of quality. The flag is stitched with a double sewn hem, and comes complete with a headband, rope, and toggle to ensure it can be flown immediately from any standard flagpole.
