Vintage Royal Navy Printed Blue Ensign Flag with Rope & Toggle 53" x 25" The Blue Ensign is a Flag one of several British Ensigns, used by certain organisations or territories associated with the United Kingdom. It is used either plain or defaced with a badge or other emblem. The evolution of the Blue Ensign followed that of the Union Jack. The ensign originated in the 17th century with the St Georges Cross (the Flag of England) in the canton, and with a blue field (top right). The Acts of Union 1707 united England and Wales with Scotland in the Kingdom of Great Britain thus producing a new Blue Ensign with the new Union Flag in the canton. With the Act of Union Ireland joined the United Kingdom and St Patricks Cross was added to the Union Flag and, accordingly, to the cantons of all British ensigns from 1 January 1801.
This exceptional item will make a great display piece for nautical decor.
