The England flag was adopted back in the 16th century. It features the red cross of St. George, which was used back in the Middle Ages and during the Crusades, and is one of the earliest recognized symbols of the country. The England flag takes the cross from St. George, who legend has it slew a dragon.
The England flag has the proportion ratio of 3:5. It is red and white, and the red cross has a width of 1/5 of the height of the flag.
The design has been part of the Union flag in some form or another since 1606. The England flag has recently become very popular for the English to use at sporting events, including football, rugby, and cricket. Some citizens, including many black people, are suspicious of the flag, and often associate it with the BNP.
The largest city and capital in the country is London. The England flag belongs to a country whose national anthem or song is “God and my right”.
