This little flag to us so dear,
The Union Jack of Fame,
Come, sit by me, and you shall hear
The way it got its name.

We first must look at other three,
Please hold them up quite tight,
They all have crosses, you can see,
Two red ones and one white.

St. Patrick’s Cross, to Ireland dear,
Like letter X it lies;
St. George’s Cross, so bright and clear,
Led England’s battle cries.

St. Andrew’s Cross is white, you see,
Upon a bed of blue,
The Scottish flag it used to be,
To it the folks were true.

In Course of time, the three combin’d,
It was a famous tack:
We’ll do the same, and you will find,
Great Britain’s Union Jack.

Description

In 1606, when England and Scotland were both ruled by one monarch (James I), the first Union Jack flag was created by merging the English flag (the red cross of Saint George on a white background) with the Scottish flag (the diagonal white cross of Saint Andrew on a blue background).

The Union Jack, or Union Flag, is the national flag of the United Kingdom. The flag also has official status in Canada, by parliamentary resolution, where it is known as the Royal Union Flag. Additionally, it is used as an official flag in some of the smaller British overseas territories.
