The United Kingdom adopted this flag in 1801. It was designed by layering the cross of St. George (England’s patron saint) over the cross of St. Patrick (Ireland’s patron saint) and the Saltire of St. Andrew (Scotland’s patron saint).
This flag is printed on cotton muslin and mounted to a natural wood dowel staff. The 4 in. x 6 in. flag is mounted to a 10 in. staff, while the 12 in. x 18 in. flag is mounted to a 30 in. staff. Base not included.
