Union Jack? More like the Union... I can't think of an insulting word that rhymes with Jack, Union Cack?

Oh, thanks for posting that. When I looked I couldn't see it. Clearly I wasn't looking hard enough! The David flag is a cross similar to George's though so if you were to put that in then it would just overlap the George cross and be integrated in.DJjaffacake said:On the contrary, he does http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flag_of_Saint_David but I think the issue is that wales was never officially brought into the Union, so they were just never added.Riku said:It's only because Saint David doesn't have his own sigil I think, whereas Saint's George, Patrick and Andrew all doDJjaffacake said:
I'm really surprised that Microsoft isn't making a US Flag 360. With the pseudo-patriotism that runs rampant in this country (well, a good chunk of the country), you'd think there would be a huge market for that sorta thing.Riku said:Since the new British flag Xbox 360 has been announced, people on Xbox360achievements.org have been debating over whether it is called the Union Jack, or Union Flag.
I'm British/English and honestly for all my 24 years in this country I have never ever heard it be called the Union Flag.
I know where the 'Jack' part of the name comes from (the navy) but since it has been around for a long time, it has been built into this country as the union jack. I honestly don't know a single person who calls it the union flag.
So British people, do you call it the union jack? or the union flag?
American/Rest of World people, what have you heard it called as? and what do you call it yourself?
Oh no, not the sheep, whatever will I do to the stop the sheep.FamoFunk said:Sleep with one eye open, bro. Your time here is slowly coming to an end.Daystar Clarion said:

Honestly I'm just as surprised too. American's do love their patriotism. I think the only reason they've made the Union Jack (sticker) 360 is that it's the olympics are being hosted in london this year, otherwise it wouldn't have happened. Although if that is the case I would have expected to see some kind of Olympic logo on it *shrugs*chadachada123 said:I'm really surprised that Microsoft isn't making a US Flag 360.

(America, fuck yeah)
There is an official Saint David's flag, and there have been short-lived campaigns to try and change the official Welsh flag from the Dragon to the Cross. Personally I prefer the dragon, but the cross would be easier to integrate into the union flagRiku said:It's only because Saint David doesn't have his own sigil I think, whereas Saint's George, Patrick and Andrew all doDJjaffacake said:
Heed this Man's words...Daystar Clarion said:Isn't it only called the Union Jack if it's on a ship?
Otherwise it's the Union Flag.
Just another of those little misconceptions that everybody seems to believe, then it turns out it's bollocks.
If you make the dragon on your flag look a bit more awesome then maybe the rest of us will consent to it being placed in the middle of the flag.FamoFunk said:
