National flag of England:
England is represented by the flag of St. George
- England is represented by the flag of St. George. England's flag has a white background with a red cross through it. (To me, it looks it the Red Cross symbol.)
- The flag consists of 3 heraldic crosses. It was Richard I (Richard The Lion Heart) of England who introduced the Cross of St. George, in 1194 A.D.
- The reason why it is white with a red cross through it is because that was St. George's emblem.
- The King's soldiers wore it on their tunics during war so that they didn't kill, or be killed by, their own men.
Colors: Red and White. White background with red cross
The red cross appeared as an emblem of England during the Middle Ages and the Crusades and is one of the earliest known emblems representing England.
The red cross on the white background is the symbol of St George, the patron saint of England.
The Union Flag, the flag of the United Kingdom of England, Scotland and Northern Ireland, is a mixture of the flags of England, Scotland and Ireland. The blue is from the white x-shaped cross of St Andrew on a blue background of Scotland.
England's flag (not the British flag) is a red cross on a white background. This flag is the emblem or cross of St. George, the patron saint of England.
