During the American Revolution, the British flag was the old union jack that had been designed for the navy of King James I of England and made the official flag of the Kingdom of Great Britain with the Acts of Union 1707. It was the Cross of St George, a red + cross on white, superimposed on the Cross of St Andrew, a white x cross on blue.
The old union jack differed from the current one, because it did not have the other crosses superimposed on the Cross of St Patrick, a red x cross on white, as the new one does.
There is a link below to an image of the Union Jack at the time of the American Revolution. For the purpose of comparison, there is also a link to the newer Union Jack.
