The Union between England and Scotland and served as the basis for the new flag of the two allied States
The first time the flag was used only at sea, both military and merchant ships of both countries Since 1634 it was decided to use it only on military vessels as a Jack.
The adoption of the Act of Union in 1707 merged the two kingdoms into a single Kingdom of great Britain and the Union Jack became the flag of the new state .
Now in Wales comes a proposal to place a flag with a red dragon
