4.3. British Colonies Flag

The Royal Union Flag (1606-1800)

The Royal Union Jack flew above British Colonies from Newfoundland to the Gulf of Mexico.

The St. George's cross (England) and St. Andrew's Cross were first combined to create the Royal Union Flag.

In 1801, the diagonal Cross of St. Patrick, red on white, was incorporated to form the British Flag, known as the Union Jack.
