Flag of England


The England flag is taken from the Cross of St. George. The cross of the Red Cross as a symbol of England can be traced back to the late Middle Ages and was increasingly used alongside the royal flag following the British Reformation, especially as a naval flag.

This material was used as a component in the design of the Union Jack in 1606.

It has been widely used since the 1990s, especially in national sports competitions, especially during the England national football team season.

Origin


The original of the flag, its connection to St. George (the patron saint of Britain), and its approval by the British, all lack clear and precise documents.

At St George’s Church in Fordington, England, there is a statue of St. George on horseback leading the Crusaders to victory in the Battle of Antioch (June 1098). His flag has a cross.

It is known that the English Crusaders used the red flag with the white cross around 1189. Another record from 1277 testifies that the Red Cross of St. George on white was used for flags flown by the forces of King Edward I.

The same flag, called the banner of victory, was shown early in Christ’s artistic performances.

The flag was later attributed to St. George as a patron saint of soldiers. There is some evidence that the flag of this design was hoisted on British ships in the late thirteenth century.

As part of the Union Jack and the various English flags, the St George’s Cross continues to play an important symbolic role today, although when Britain and Scotland joined forces to form Britain in 1707, their flags lost their international individual status.

The Anglo-Saxons, a group of Germans, established several kingdoms throughout England.

Contemporary England

In 1914, when World War I was fought over an arms race between European countries, the superiority of the British navy was palpable. So American intervention in favor of the Allies and the end of the war, many of the African and German occupations were occupied by Britain.

With the declaration of British war against Nazi Germany on September 3, 1939, World War II began. The war inflicted heavy losses on Britain and the country went bankrupt.

During this period, Britain pursued the independence of its colonies with a peaceful and non-violent policy, leading to the independence of India and Pakistan in 1947. Gradually, the British colonies joined them.

World War II caused a sharp decline in Britain and the rise of the United States. During this period, British government agencies equipped and trained Americans, which played a significant role in this empowerment.

Important political events in Britain after World War II include the founding of the European Union (1973), the war with Argentina (1982), participation in the Persian Gulf War (1991), the transfer and return of the Regiment to China (1997).
