Hi Dan, just wondering why the saltaire cross of St Patrick has disappeared from your Union Jack?
Yes it is Union Jack are three Christian Crosses of St George, St Patrick, St Andrew.
1) There are about twenty modern nations whose currency is called the "dollar." The word apparently derives from "taler," which in turn comes from "Joachimsthal," the name of a place in Bohemia where the taler (a silver coin) was created, with the "-thal" part presumably meaning "valley." (The modern German spelling, by the way, has been changed to "tal," which explains the new spelling of the English word "Neandertal.") So, we use dollars today because certain coins were once minted in a valley. 2) The flag of Britain, commonly known as the Union Jack (which derives from the use of the Union Flag on the jack-staff of naval vessels), embodies the emblems of three countries under one Sovereign. The emblems that appear on the Union Flag are the crosses of three patron saints: The red cross of St George, for England, on a white ground; The white diagonal cross, or saltire, of St Andrew, for Scotland on a blue ground; The red diagonal cross of St Patrick, for Ireland, on a white ground. 3) Wales is not repres ...
FACTS ABOUT THE UNION JACK. Wales is not represented on the Union Jack. That fact is beyond dispute. As such, the extent to which it was flaunted by department stores, shops, pubs, households and other organizations in Llanelli (and Wales generally) during the 2012 Jubilee Jamboree, the Olympics and the Paralympics was truly amazing. For the record, the Union Flag is made up solely of the Crosses of St George of England, St Andrew of Scotland and St Patrick of Ireland. The Cross of St David of Wales – that beautiful gold cross on a black background – is nowhere to be seen on it. Neither is the Red Dragon of Wales. Therefore, the actual composition of the Union Jack simply does not match what it is meant to represent – the United Kingdom. The Cross of St Patrick represents Ireland - the whole of Ireland – so that the Republic of Ireland is still represented on it even though it became independent of the UK in 1922, which means that the flag is 90years out-of-date! However, Wales – which i ...
The Union Flag, commonly known as the Union Jack, is the flag of the United Kingdom.[1] It retains an official or semi-official status in some Commonwealth Realms; for example, it is known as the Royal Union Flag in Canada.[2] It is also used as an official flag in some of the smaller British overseas territories. The Union Jack also appears in the canton (upper left-hand quarter) of the flags of several nations and territories that were former British colonies. The current design dates from the Union of Great Britain and Ireland in 1801.[3] The flag consists of the red cross of Saint George (patron saint of England), edged in white, superimposed on the Cross of St Patrick (patron saint of Ireland), which are superimposed on the Saltire of Saint Andrew (patron saint of Scotland
I have changed my Union Jack because I was reliably informed this evening that it was the wrong way up. I looked it up: The flag does not have reflection symmetry, due to the slight pinwheeling of St Patrick's cross, which is technically called the counterchange of saltires. Thus, it has a right side and a wrong side up. To fly the flag the correct way up, the broad portion of the white cross of St Andrew should be above the red band of St Patrick (and the thin white portion below) in the upper hoist canton (the corner at the top nearest to the flag-pole), giving the Scottish symbol precedence over the Irish symbol. This is expressed by the phrases wide white top and broad side up. Traditionally, flying a flag upside down is understood as a distress signal. In the case of the Union Flag, the difference is so subtle as to be easily missed by many. Indeed, some people have displayed it upside down inadvertently. (That'll be me!!) On 3 February 2009, the BBC reported that the flag had been inadvertently flo ...
