The Jimmy Green Union Flag is a meticulously crafted piece of patriotic artwork that beautifully captures the essence of the United Kingdom. Measuring 45cm x 30cm (Half Yard), this flag is the perfect size for displaying your British pride in any setting.
Crafted from top-quality 100% polyester woven bunting, this flag features the iconic Union design screen printed with exceptional definition and detail. Unlike cheaper alternatives, our flag is made from a UV-resistant fabric that ensures long-lasting vibrancy and resists fading, even under prolonged exposure to sunlight.
The hoist of the flag is reinforced with special flag webbing tape, adding durability and strength to withstand the elements. For added convenience, a braided line is sewn into the integral hoist tape, creating a loop at the top and a tail at the bottom. This design allows for easy attachment to flagpoles, ropes, or hooks, so you can proudly display your Union Flag wherever you desire.
Our flag is meticulously finished with twin-stitched hems along the outside edges, ensuring a neat and polished appearance that will enhance any display. The half-yard size, although nominal, is carefully measured and may vary slightly due to the nature of the production and sewing process, guaranteeing a unique and authentic piece.
As a symbol of British history and unity, the Union Flag holds great significance. The design dates back to the union of the Scottish and English crowns in 1603 when James VI of Scotland became the King of England and Ireland. In 1606, King James proclaimed the creation of the Flag of the Kingdom of Great Britain, which combined the Saltire of Scotland and the St. George's Cross. It wasn't until 1801, with the addition of the cross of St. Patrick, that the Flag of the United Kingdom, known as the Union Jack, was established.
Aside from its representation of the United Kingdom, the Union Flag has influenced the design of numerous national flags worldwide. Its distinctive features are often incorporated as a canton or similar element, paying homage to historical connections and associations. Within the UK, the Union Flag is also used on civil and military flags, serving as a means of identifying the origin of a particular entity.
In summary, the Jimmy Green Union Flag is a meticulously crafted piece of artistry that beautifully represents the United Kingdom's heritage. With its superior quality construction, excellent definition, and UV-resistant polyester fabric, this flag is designed to withstand the test of time. The Jimmy Green Union Flag is the embodiment of British pride, perfect for flying at home during festive celebrations
However, it should definitely not be flown as either the British National Maritime Ensign or as a courtesy flag on foreign yachts visiting the UK.
