The individual flags of the British Isles are represented above, with the exception of Northern Ireland. The fact is, Northern Ireland has not had its own unique flag since 1973.

The flag of the United Kingdom, the Union Jack, is currently the only official flag representing Northern Ireland. It is made from an amalgamation of the crosses of St. George (England), St. Andrew (Scotland) and St. Patrick (Ireland).
