Speaking of flags, when did the Brits change theirs?  I noticed at the last Olympics they were using the cross of St. John instead of the union jack.  What's up with that?

The Union Jack is the flag of United Kingdom. The St. George's Cross is the flag of England.

I see.  But I've watched the Olympics since the 1984 games and always remember them raising the jack when they won.  Last games, it was the cross instead.  When did this policy change?

I believe that the Olympics is the only time the UK plays as one team. all the rest of the time they play as own countries, ie world cup etc

Did a bit of googling but every picture I can find of recent olympic wins for Great Britian it is the Union Jack.

As another poster indicated, they compete at the Olympics as Great Britain, not as the individual countries.

Do you've a link where the St. Gerorge's Cross was used?

This is a great video, I love that he pointed out the important difference between referring to yourself as "English" as opposed to "British".

Scots; Welsh; Irish; and English - the essential difference...

An English man climbed a mountain in Tibet; when he got to the top he found ---

A Scot designing a building as a mountain-top pub;

A Welshman quarrying the stone to build it with;

And an Irishman preparing to build and run it.

What did the English man do?

Of course, he immediately started scheming out to suck all the profit out of it.

Scottish man; Irish man; and English man in the 2nd world war running from the germans when they stumble upon a stable.

they go running in and see 3 sacks lying on the floor, they all jump in one each

germans come busting though the door and see the 3 sacks,

they kick the 1st one where the Scottish man is, and he makes the sound of a dog.
german says oh dogs

german kicks the 2nd sack where the english man is, the englishman makes the sound of cats. german says oh cats

german kicks the 3rd sack where the irish man is, thinking fast the irish man says potatoes, potatoes

and the german shoots him!

England, N. Ireland, Scotland and Wales all have different flags. The red cross on white background is England's flag and the Union Jack is the British flag.

I don't know if the policy has ever changed. I have only ever known the St. George Cross to be used to represent England. The Union Jack would not have been used, for sure.

It's not called the union jack!

It's called the union flag ( unless you're on a ship, then you can call it a jack )

Sorry to be so picky!
