The Union Jack or Union Flag is the national flag of the United Kingdom. It has been in use since 1801.

The flag of Wales, whilst well known throughout the UK, is a relatively new flag having been in use since 1959. 

It is said that the Union Jack is comprised of elements of the flags of England, Scotland and Northern Ireland but not Wales. This is not correct though because at the time of the Union Jack's creation, the cross of St George was used to represent both England and Wales.

Great on a tablet PC!

We wanted our pupils to use their tablet PCs in our geography lessons but we found there was a shortage of good resources to use with them. So we started making web pages that can be used in lessons that were accessed through the tablet's browser. What do you think? How can we do this better? Drop us an email to let us know.
