I'm not entirely sure what you mean by this question, but here are three possible answers: If you are basically asking "Why is the flag of England a red cross on a white field?", then the answer is because it is the St. George's cross, and St. George is the patron saint of England. If you are asking "Why do they use the flag of England for Britain?" then the answer is they don't. The flag of England is as described above, and the flag of Britain is the Union Flag, a composite of the flags of Scotland, England and Northern Ireland If you are asking "Why does the flag of Britain look the way it does?", and are just mistakenly calling Britain "England", (a thing which, incidentally, really infuriates us Scots), then the answer is as above, it is a composite of three of the constituent nations in the state of the UK.
