Red Ensign of Great Britain from 1707 – 1800
British red ensign Superknit Polyester 3×5 Flag. This version of the British Red Ensign, also known as the Red Duster was introduced in 1707 upon the official union of England and Scotland thus creating the Kingdom of Great Britain. The ensign was flown on British naval and merchant ships as well as the ships of British colonies and territories, which meant the flag was flown on the ships of the 13 colonies in North America before the American Revolution. The red ensign flag was also the basis for the Grand Union flag design which served as the first American national flag.
