Did you know...
The Union Jack expresses the diversity of the British Isles by integrating the flags of Scotland, England, and Northern Ireland in one symbol, literally showing the nations’ union. Each cross represents one of the countries, specifically the patron saint of that country. Saint George was the patron saint of England, Saint Andrew of Scotland, and Saint Patrick of Ireland. The red horizontal and vertical stripes are of England, the red diagonal stripes are of Ireland, and the white diagonal stripes with blue a background are of Scotland. The Welsh Dragon was not incorporated into the design, mainly because Wales and England were already united when the idea for the Union Jack first came into being.
The Union Jack in Fashion and Design
Although the Union Jack dates back to 1606 after England and Scotland were united, the design came into recent popular culture during Beatlemania in the swinging Sixties. London became a hub of all things new and fashionable. Many new bands adopted the symbol of trendy Britain in the early periods of rock and roll. One particular influential musician to take up the Union Jack was Pete Townsend of The Who, who famously wore a Union-Jack emblazoned jacket on their first album cover. More recently, Freddie Mercury and Oasis have endorsed the design. Also, Geri Halliwell made the flag popular with a mini-dress at the Brit Awards in 1997. Since then, the Union Jack has been found used in the design of all sorts of clothing and home accessories, including Union Jack bedding, Union Jack mugs, and the ever popular Union Jack cushions.
