Thank you so much to Amanda Prout for coordinating the SIPQ 2016 project in this school and to all the children who have taken part.
British Flag History:
The British flag was adopted on January 1, 1801, making it one of the oldest flags in the world. The first British flag dates back to 1606 when it combined the flags of the Kingdoms of England and Scotland. Northern Ireland’s flag of St. Patrick was added in 1801 and completed the flag as we know it today. Wales isn’t represented separately on the flag because it had already been united with England by the time the first flag was formed in 1606.
The British flag’s more common name is the Union Jack.
