The Union Flag, popularly known as the Union Jack, symbolises the union of the countries of the UK. It is made up of the individual flags of three countries in the Kingdom. It is called the Union Flag because it symbolises the administrative union of the countries of the United Kingdom. It is made up up of the individual Flags of three of the Kingdom's countries all united under one Sovereign - the countries of 'England, of 'Scotland' and of 'Northern Ireland' (since 1921 only Northern Ireland has been part of the United Kingdom). As Wales was not a Kingdom but a Principality it could not be included on the flag.
POPULATION The population is very unequally distributed over the four parts of the UK: England 84% of the total population, Wales around 5%, Scotland 8. 5 %, and Northern Ireland (since 1921) less than 3%. England 51. 1 million Northern Ireland 1. 8 million Scotland 5. 1 million Wales 3. 0 million United Kingdom 60, 975, 000
WEATHER Britain is an island country and the surrounding sea gives England a varied climate. We never know what the weather will be like from one day to the other. It can be sunny one day and rainy the next. As we have such a variable climate changing from day to day, it is difficult to predict the weather. In general we have warm summers and cool winters. Our summers are cooler than those on the continent, but the winters are milder.

" Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, J. K. Rowling
