England is represented by the flag of St. George


In 1194 A.D., Richard I of England introduced the Cross of St. George, a red cross on a white ground, as the National Flag of England.

At this point in the story on the United Kingdom, England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland were separate countries. However, this was soon to change....

In 1536, under Henry VIII, an Act of Union was passed making Wales, in effect a province of England.
