The cross of St George relates specifically to England - a red cross on a white background.


The "Union Jack" - the flag of Great Britain

- is a combination of the Cross of St George (England),



with Scotland's cross of St Andrew - white saltire (diagonal cross) on a dark blue background and Ireland's Cross of St Patrick (red saltire on a white background)
