Well Young Matthew;)

The Union FLAG is only known as Union Jack when it is of a certain size and on the jack of a ship.........................and that is only when the Queen is aboard

Sorry Mat, I gotta agree with the young lady here... the number of times I have been 'corrected' over that one myself over the years by people from the forces and through Scouting, I cant very well turn around now and claim its a 'Jack' :lol:

I'm pleasantly suprised at the look of the MGF, its just a shame that there isnt a matching hard-top :D

The term Union Jack possibly dates from Queen Anne's time (reigned 1702-14), but its origin is uncertain. It may come from the 'jack-et' of the English or Scottish soldiers; or from the name of James I who originated the first union in 1603, in either its Latin or French form Jacobus or Jacques; or, as 'jack' once meant small, the name may be derived from a royal proclamation issued by Charles II that the Union Flag should be flown only by ships of the Royal Navy as a jack, a small flag at the bowsprit.
