Union Jack I
The name Union Jack was officially acknowledged as an alternative name for the Union Flag by the Admiralty and Parliament in the early 20th century. One source said that the term 'jack' refers to the flag that is flown from the bowsprit of a ship, often denoting nationality.
*This flag is sold, but I am taking commissions on flags, and can paint another version/perspective of the Union Jack for you, or a different country.
