At the time of the first crusade, the Knights Templar used the blood red cross of Jesus on their white tunics, shields and banners, but in later crusades the shape of the cross changed. On the St.George flag of England today, the red cross is horizontal and the two red lines are middle-crossing, but… on the earlier St.George flag of England, the two lines were not middle-crossing and looked more like a crucifix. The red cross on the Templar tunic, shields and banners was perpendicular and it was symbolic, for they were the protectorates of its meaning. . Kind regards, Raymond E.O.Ella. (MORE)

Well it has its origins in Medieval heraldry.

England itself has only one national flag, the St. George's Cross which is a red cross on a white background (although in the Middle Ages, the colours were reversed). The English county of Cornwall has a flag of it's own called the St. Piran's Cross, which is white on a black background (although Co…rnwall is technically a part of England, most of it's population are actually of Celtic descent rather than Anglo-Saxon or Anglo-Norman in origin, and the Cornish language is still spoken in some areas). The flag of Wales is the Red Dragon, depicting a red dragon on a green field with a white sky. The Scottish flag, or 'saltire', is The St. Andrew's Cross, a diagonal white cross on a blue background. The flag of Northern Ireland is a red diagonal flag on a white background, although Republicans prefer to use the Irish tricolour as they don't like having to acknowledge that Ulster is seperate from the Irish Republic, and Loyalists prefer the 'Red Hand' flag- pretty much the same as the St. George's flag but with a red hand held palm-forwards in the centre of it. The Isle of Mann is not a part of the UK, but for the record it's national flag is the Three Legs- three golden or silver-coloured legs in Mediaeval armour bent at the knee and joined to form a design not unlike the Swastika, on a red background. The only flags that claim to represent the United Kingdom as a whole are the Union Jack and the Royal Standard- divided into four smaller rectangles, the Royal Standard depicts the three lions of England in the top right and bottom left corners- the top right has yellow lions on a red background, whilst on the bottom left these colours are reversed. In the top left is the rampant red lion of Scotland on a yellow background and with a red border, whilst in the bottom right is a yellow female-headed harp on a navy blue background, representing Ireland. However, neither the Union Jack nor the Royal Standard really represent the whole of the UK as they do not include Wales (they were designed before Wales was legally recognised as a seperate country).
