"Flag of the British Empire"

The early 1900s saw many calls for the British Empire to adopt a new flag representative of all its dominions, Crown colonies, protectorates, and territories. Such a role was already fulfilled by the Union Jack of the United Kingdom, but some regions of the empire were beginning to develop distinct national identities that no longer seemed appropriately showcased by that flag alone. For example, after achieving self-governance, Canada used a British ensign defaced by its coat of arms as a flag to represent itself internationally. Other regions such as Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa began using similar flags as they gained autonomy as well. Although the Union Jack in the canton of these flags still felt like a natural inclusion by their primarily white settlers, who considered the United Kingdom to be their homeland, it was becoming clear to some that the growing status of all these new nations deserved to be highlighted in some form. This led to the creation of many Empire flags, which saw widespread use from the beginning of the reign of George V to the end of the Second World War. This variant was designed in 1921. (©Wikipedia)
