The flag of England, derived from Saint George’s Cross, symbolizes the nation’s rich history and maritime heritage.

This historic flag accompanied settlers to Jamestown in 1607 and the Mayflower’s journey in 1620, representing the enduring spirit of England’s exploration and settlement.
The Annin Flagmakers St. George Cross Flag, also known as the England Flag, is a remarkable symbol of English history and heritage. With its rich origins dating back to the Late Middle Ages, this flag carries a profound significance that has endured through the centuries.
The design of the England Flag is derived from Saint George’s Cross, a red cross on a white field. The association of the red cross with England dates back to medieval times, when it became a closely associated emblem. After the English Reformation, the St. George’s Cross saw increased use, especially as a maritime flag displayed alongside the Royal Banner.

The history of the St. George’s Cross Flag intertwines with significant moments in the exploration and settlement of America. When news of Christopher Columbus’ discovery reached King Henry VII of England, he took a keen interest in exploration. John Cabot, who was seeking support for an expedition, caught the king’s attention. Under England’s Royal Standard, with the Red Cross of St. George on a white field, Cabot embarked in 1497. On June 24, he planted this flag on Labrador’s shores, the first flag flown over mainland America, except Vikings’.
The St. George’s Cross Flag continued to make appearances throughout American history. It accompanied the settlers to Jamestown in 1607, as the Constant sailed under its colors. The Mayflower flew this flag when it brought the Pilgrim Fathers to Plymouth in 1620. These significant voyages symbolize the exploration, settlement, and the enduring connection between England and America.
Annin Flagmakers’ St. George Cross Flag showcases England’s legacy with its striking red cross on a white field. This flag reminds of England’s global contributions and enduring heritage when displayed at home, schools, or historical sites.
