I am the escaped one

I am the escaped one

I am the escaped one,
After I was born
They locked me up inside me
But I left.
My soul seeks me,
Through hills and valley,
I hope my soul
Never finds me.

Esquema e resumo.



 
 
   The Union Flag, popularly known as the
 Union Jack, is the national flag of the United Kingdom.
    It is called the Union Flag because it symbolises the administrative union of the countries of the 
United Kingdom. It is made up of the individual Flags of three of the Kingdom’s countries -
 England, Scotland and Northern Ireland – all united under one Sovereign, Queen Elizabeth II. As Wales was not a Kingdom but a Principality it could not be included on the flag.
    ’Union Jack’ was officially acknowledged as an alternative name for the Union Flag by the Admiralty and Parliament in the early 20th century. The term ‘jack’ refers to the flag that is flown from the bowsprit of a ship, often denoting nationality.

Ireland is represented by the cross of St. Patrick.

On 1 January 1801, Ireland was united with Great Britain and it became necessary to have a new National Flag in which Ireland was represented. The cross St Patrick was combined with the Union Flag of St George and St Andrew, to create the Union Flag that has been flown ever since.

To summarize...


The formation of the Union Flag (Union Jack) came about as the result of the progressive merging of the inhabitants of the British Isles under one throne.

1603 - King James VI of Scotland inherited the English throne and became King James I of England.
1606 - the National Flags of Scotland and England were united for use at sea, thus making the first Union Flag
The Union Flag of 1606
The first Union Flag (1606)
1707 - during the reign of Queen Anne, the first Union Flag was by royal proclamation made the National flag of Great Britain, for use ashore and afloat.
1801 - Ireland was united with Great Britain and the present Union Flag was formed.

The Union Flag consists of the three heraldic crosses of St George, St Andrew and St Patrick.
The flags of the Patron Saints of England, Scotland and Ireland are represented on the Union Flag.


 But, why is Wales not represented on the Union Flag?
Why doesn't the Welsh dragon appear on the Union Flag?


Welsh Flag 
The Welsh dragon does not appear on the flag because when the first Union Flag was created in 1606, Wales was already united with England from the 13th century. This meant that Wales a Principality instead of a Kingdom and as such could not be included.
In 1536, under Henry VIII, the Act of Union joined England and Wales officially.
