Pedant alert ......Union Flag \ Jack

The OED defines the Union Jack as "Originally and properly, a small British Union Flag flown as the jack of a ship"

However, an Admiralty Circular of 1902 noted that the two names were interchangeable, and Parliament confirmed the terminology in 1908 by declaring 'the Union Jack should be regarded as the national flag.
