British Navy Flag

The British Navy flag origin there were three naval squadrons, of the Red, White and Blue, and they took these colors from those of the Union Jack. The division was made in the 1680’s, if I remember correctly. Because the Red Ensigns of England and Scotland had already been established as merchant flags a Red Ensign with the Union in the canton became the merchant flag of Great Britain upon Union in 1707. This led to potential confusion – was that ship a merchantman or a member of the red squadron?  In 1864 it was decided to end this anomaly. Henceforth the White Ensign was reserved to the Royal Navy; the Blue Ensign undefaced to the Royal Naval Reserve and defaced with the appropriate departmental or territorial badge to government service; and the Red Ensign to the ‘merchant navy’ (as the term is in Britain).
