The union jack should be combined with the Welsh flag, according to an MP who wants the change to be made to reflect Wales’ status within the UK.
One minute the Welsh are complaining about independence, the next they want the Welsh Dragon stamped on the Union Flag (that neither the Welsh nor the Scottish fly anyway). Personally I find this insulting and a little late, they have had hundreds of years to complain about this, it is too late now.
The reason that the Welsh have not been represented on the Union flag is that it is the flag of the United Kingdoms of Scotland, England and Ireland. Wales has been a principality for centuries, the Queen is Monarch of England, Scotland and Ireland, not Wales.
Besides if we start this silliness now with the Welsh where will it end? There are more Muslims in the UK than Welsh, does that mean that next we should have passages from the Qu’ran on the flag? Perhaps when Wales starts pulling its weight economically in the Union they will earn the right to complain about things like this, as it is Wales is on an economic par with countries like Angola and Libya. Scotland on the other hand is up there with the likes of Venezuela, the UAE and Portugal. Contrast that with England, who, without Scotland and Wales, would be the sixth richest country in the world.
So to be honest Wales’ status within the Union is fairly reflected, the Union Jack has red on it, and to be fair, the Welsh should be glad of even that. When Wales is up there with the likes of Switzerland, Holland and Belgium economically, then I will also join the call to have the Welsh dragon on the Union flag. In fact should that happen, I would even agree to something like this:
