So where is the dragon?

?           
The reason for the lack of inclusion in the Union Jack however is due to the fact that Wales was never fully developed into an actual kingdom.  

Slide 24 - Slide

Where did the name 'Union Jack' come from?
There are various theories as to how it got its name. The most plausible one is that when a small flag was mounted on the front of a warship,
 it was called ‘the Jack’.


Sometime around 1674 the British flag became formally known as the ‘Union Jack’ when mounted on a warship and the ship was not in harbour. 

Slide 25 - Slide

Careful when you place the Union Jack...

Tip: 
Always make sure that the red line in the top-left corner is at the bottom of the white cross.
Make sure you hang the flag up the right way. An upside-down Union Flag is used as a sign of distress. 
Even worse, it can be seen as an offensive gesture!
