Type of Thesis
This paper asserts that the Union Flag was not a national flag but a heraldic device of James I. The Union Flag represented James I and his experiment in union, and not a British nation. The Union Flag was not a national flag in 1606, but a new version of the royal arms. At this time, Britain was simply the creation of heritage and the politics that surrounded it. King James I was for all intents and purposes Britain.
