The ag is a combinationo the countries’ three ags: the ag o St. George, the ag o St. Andrew and the cross o St. Patrick.Wales is not included within the ag’s design because it is a Principality, which means that it is ruledover by a Prince or Princess (currently Prince Charles), and thereore not under the same rule asEngland, Scotland and Northern Ireland.- The colour purple is commonly recognised as the colour o royalty/nobility.
