union jack top banner

The United Kingdom of Great Britain & Northern Ireland uses the royal banner as its national flag – also known as the Union Flag or, more popularly, The Union Jack.  The term Union Jack is used in a modern context & derives from the written name of James I of England. The latin name for James is Jacobus and the British version of Jacobus is Jack. The  design of the Union Flag dates back to the union of Great Britain & Ireland back in 1801. It consists of the red cross of Saint George, with white edges, placed over the Cross of St Patrick, which are in tern superimposed on the Saltire of Saint Andrew. Wales, however, is not represented in the Union Flag.  In this section you will find art that includes classic Union Jack prints, distressed Union Jack\’s & modern mash-ups of the union jack.
