Best Answer

When Queen Elizabeth I was dying, she named King James IV of Scotland as the successor to the throne. In 1606, King James created a flag which looked almost like the flag of Britain looks today. It was in 1800 when England and Ireland unified and formed the United Kingdom that the flag as it looks today was created, under the reign of King George III.

The cross of St George (red on a white background) has been used as a flag for England for hundreds of years. It was first used in 1275. No single person is said to have invented it.
