The British Red Ensign is a flag that originated in the early 17th century and was used by British merchant and naval vessels. It features a red background with the Union Jack, the national flag of the United Kingdom, in the upper left corner of the flag, occupying a quarter of the space. The rest of the flag is filled with a stylized version of the British Coat of Arms, featuring a lion and unicorn supporting a shield with a cross and other symbols.

The design of the British Red Ensign has evolved over time, with slight variations in the placement and size of the Union Jack and the Coat of Arms. In general, however, the flag has remained a symbol of the United Kingdom’s maritime heritage and its global reach as a colonial power.
