Features[edit]

"Features"? That would apply to a flag that was quartered with it too, or one that bore marks of cadency etc. the description probably needs more. PML. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 203.202.5.75 (talkcontribs)

Flag of England <> St George's Cross[edit]

St George's Cross is a model of cross, and not a flag. The St George's Cross is present also in other flags. I think the two pages mustn't be merged.the preceding comment is by 84.222.1.86 (talkcontribs) : Please sign your posts!.

Battle of Poitiers, 1356, who is using the red cross as field badge?[edit]

It's John II of France who is using the red cross..."https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drapeau_de_la_France#/media/File:R%C3%A9dition_de_Jean_le_Bon.jpg"...unless the painter made a mistake, and John, with a sword, is in fact Edward.

The figures on the left look victorious. The figures on the right defeated. The left is woods, the right is plains. Given that England won at Poitiers by attacking through the woods, I wonder if a later artist added incorrect captions? Ariehkovler (talk) 16:23, 11 July 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Semi-protected edit request on 4 February 2021[edit]

The banner of England is gotten from Saint George's Cross (heraldic blazon: Argent, a cross gules). The relationship of the red cross as a token of England can be followed back to the Late Middle Ages, and it was progressively utilized close by the Royal Banner in the wake of the English Reformation, particularly as an oceanic banner. It was utilized as a segment in the plan of the Union Jack in 1606.[2]

It has been broadly utilized since the 1990s, explicitly at public games, particularly during England's public football crew's season.[3] Mio hasselsen 4567 (talk) 16:43, 4 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
