The UK, officially known as the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, makes for an interesting country.

Make sure that you strictly adhere to every guideline that has been compiled for a great, blunder-free visit to this stupendous island nation:
The Union Jack is the national flag of the United Kingdon of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. The design of the Union Jack combines aspects of three older national flags: the red cross of St George of England, the white saltire of St Andrew for Scotland and the red saltire of St Patrick to represent Ireland. Wales, despite also being part of the Union, has never been represented on the flag. Photo: allaboutyou.com
