Why is the English flag red white and blue?
The English flag is NOT red, white and blue. The English flag is a red cross on a white background, the St. George's cross. The British Flag is red, white and blue. The Union Jack, as it is called, brings together the English Flag, Northern Ireland's flag ( a red diagonal cross on a white background) and Scotland's flag (a white diagonal cross on a blue background.) The blue in the Union Jack comes from the Scottish saltire (St. Andrew's cross). Edit: 'Jack' is the name of the small flag on a ship. The correct term would be 'The Union Flag'. But I guess the term has stuck. Personally, I think ' Union Jack' sounds better than 'Union Flag'
