St. George Cross England Nylon Flag, All Sizes


The flag of England is derived from Saint George’s Cross. The association of the red cross as an emblem of England can be traced back to the Late Middle Ages, and it was increasingly used alongside the Royal Banner in the wake of the English Reformation, especially as a maritime flag.

While Columbus was in Spain seeking backing for an expedition the Cabots were in England on a like mission. They had little success, but when the news of Columbus’ discovery reached King Henry VII his interest quickened and he gave ear to them. More than a year was consumed in fitting out the expedition, and recruiting and training the ship’s crew. Cabot sailed under the Royal Standard of England, the Red Cross of St. George on a white field, an emblem that was brought home in the year 1275 by King Edward I when, as Prince of Wales, he went on one of the crusades to the Holy Land. On June 24, 1497, John Cabot planted this flag on the shores of Labrador. Except for the Viking flag, it was the first flown over the mainland of America. The expedition worked down the coast and went back to England. On subsequent voyages the Cabots explored as far south as Florida but effected no settlements. Under this flag the Constant brought the settlers to Jamestown in 1607. It was one of the flags flown on the Mayflower which brought the Pilgrim Fathers to Plymouth in 1620.

The Saint George Cross Flag, also known as the Flag of England, is a historical flag that is still used today as a symbol of English identity. The flag features a red cross on a white background, with the cross extending to the edges of the flag.

The Saint George Cross is named after Saint George, who is the patron saint of England. Saint George was a Roman soldier who became a Christian martyr and is known for his bravery in battle. The Saint George Cross Flag was first used during the Crusades in the 11th century as a symbol of the English knights who fought in the Holy Land.

The Saint George Cross Flag has been used as a symbol of English identity for centuries, and it was adopted as the official flag of England in the 16th century. The flag is still used today to represent England in international sporting events, such as the Olympics and the World Cup, and it is often flown on public buildings and during national celebrations.

The Saint George Cross Flag is also incorporated into the Union Jack, which is the flag of the United Kingdom. The Union Jack combines the Saint George Cross with the flags of Scotland and Ireland to symbolize the union of the three countries.
