The St. Georges cross is the flag of England, one of the constituent parts of the United Kingdom Of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. The Queen is not "Queen of England"; her title is somewhat more complex than that! The national flag of the UK is commonly called the Union Jack, but more correctly is the Union Flag. It is a composite of the cross of St George (England), the cross of St Andrew (Scotland) and the cross of St Patrick (Ireland). The Queen's personal flag is the Red & Yellow "Royal Standard".

What is the English emblem?

The "emblem" of England is the Rose and the Thistle. Theories abound as to the origin of this ubiquitous symbol of English glory. Most commonly attributed to the Crusades and the War of the Roses. More romantic historians have mythologized it a symbol of King Arthur and the mystical "Camelot". The Rose certainly, but the thistle is Scottish. The flag of England is the cross of St George, a red cross on a white ground. Indeed, however the Act of Settlement of 1701 established Scotland, Ireland and England as the United Kingdom. Therefore the Rose and Thistle became a symbol of national unity as well. It should also be pointed out the flags of Scotland, Ireland, Wales and England are flown under the Union Jack. Of course the Union Jack is the most recognizable symbol of England to the generations that followed the Act of Settlement.Of course the Union Jack always enjoys precedence above any other flag of the UK and most commonwealth countries. _______ The rose is widely regarded (at least in England itself) as the emblem of England, the thistle is a key emblem of Scotland. (By the way, the Act of Settlement 1701 regulated the succession to the throne of England. The acts uniting England and Scotland were the Acts of Union 1707 and the act uniting Great Britain and Ireland was the Act of Union 1800. - See links).
