The United Kingdom flag

How many flags formed by applying a single flag of the United Kingdom?


Flag of the United Kingdom by chance has the complex form. Its history began after the announcement of the union of England and Scotland in 1603. The total received by superimposing flag English flag of St. George (red cross on a white background) on the Scottish flag of St. Andrew (white diagonal cross on a blue background). When in 1801 the Kingdom of Ireland joined, left, and yet the flag of St. Patrick (red diagonal cross on a white background). It is worth noting that some of the Welsh call to put on a common canvas and its symbol - the red dragon, but it's unlikely to happen.
