Flag of Northern Ireland

There is currently no official flag of Northern Ireland. Instead, the Union Jack is used.

From 1953 to 1973, the " Red Hand of Ulster Flag " was used as an official flag in Northern Ireland. This consists of a red cross on a white field, Georg (like the English flag ) with a six-pointed star in the center. The star is a red hand on the star is a crown. This flag is based on the traditional flag of the province of Ulster. The background, however, was not white, but yellow; the red hand was on a white label in the middle.

Since this flag is associated with the Unionists, it is unlikely that they will be re-introduced, although it is hoisted at the Commonwealth Games. Irish nationalists and republicans use the flag of Ireland. They do not consider Northern Ireland as a separate political entity and therefore see no reason for its own flag.
