About the Union Jack

I have been studying for the British citizenship test because I want a British passport. There are a lot of interesting topics. I don’t just want to memorise the answers; I want to know what it means to be British.

The Union Jack is a national flag belonging to the British. Uniquely British incorporating the symbols within the Monarchy of Britain, representing England (with Wales), Scotland and Northern Ireland.

To represent the Union Jack to the British is the quality of embodying a noble British character. It’s their Britishness. A quality that binds and distinguishes the British people and forms the base of their unity and identity and the expressions of their culture.

To agree to disagree and to own the readiness to debate are such habits. These behaviours are the symbols they have in common. They are familiar here; an iconic quality and readily identifiable within.

The British are good with dialogue and with the ability to discuss topics with legitimacy and authenticity which are intrinsically tied to the power relations in their politics.

The Union Jack is a British national identity symbol, enabling a belonging, common courtesy and community while respecting exchanges of expression.

The British have a right to gather and to protest. This is their Britishness and it can provoke a range of responses and attitudes, such as advocacy or to be indifferent, but it’s indifference without rejection.

The Union Jack associates these British ideals of pride and patriotism, democracy and tolerance.

I believe it emphasises the very nature of the people of the United Kingdom: and to be British perpetuates diversity, unity and strength. I love Britain and the Union Jack!
