It doesn't have Wales. Why does no one know we exist?

How would you fit a dragon on the Union Jack?

...But Ireland isn't part of the U.K.

Really? Northern Ireland is in the UK the south is a separate and bankrupt nation. Independence for a tiny nation was always going to be a good idea...

Northern Irleand is, Irleand (the nation represented by the tricolour in the image) is not.

United Kingdom, not Great Britain. If you're going to correct the comic, at least do it correctly.

what's the difference?

United Kingdom has the red cross of northern Ireland, Great Britain doesn't.

ah, well thanks for clearing that up for me

Actually, it's a little bit more complicated by that.

Thedemonic isn't exactly being very clear here because the term 'Great Britain' actually refers to the island of which the majority of Scotland, Wales and England lies. It is called Great Britain because it is the largest of the British Isles. Next to Great Britain is the island of Ireland and upon it are two different countries. Ireland and Northern Ireland.

The UK is a group of countries united under one monarchy. These countries being Wales, Northern Ireland, Scotland and England.

That is the difference between Great Britain and the UK. The flag there is the Union Flag, representing all of the states of the UK (Except Wales... which is a bit of a bummer tbh...)

Why doesn't it represent Wales?

When the Union Flag was created, Wales was already long-since a principality of England and therefore was not eligible for inclusion.

In 2007 someone suggested a Union Flag with the Welsh Dragon in it but it was shot down for looking **** . Since then I've grown a personal liking of a variation where the dragon is included but is actually far smaller. It feels much nicer than the Union Flag does at the moment.
