Did you know that the closest countries to England are Scotland, Wales and FRANCE! The island of Ireland, with its two nations of Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland is further away that France across the English Channel.

The English flag is a white background with a red cross, and is called the Flag of St George. St George's day is the 23rd of April (also the date of Shakespeare's birthday) but is not celebrated as a national holiday. However, in Ireland (Northern and the Republic of), St Patrick's Day is a national holiday on the 17th March each year. If it falls at a weekend, then people get the following Monday as holiday, which can lead to a very drink filled weekend!

The Scottish flag is called the Saltire. It is a blue background with white X in the foreground. The flag is often referred to as the flag of Saint Andrew, who was supposedly crucified on an X-shaped cross.

The national symbol of Wales is the dragon, who is depicted upon the welsh flag and the Welsh are often referred to as the dragons. Each year, their national day is celebrated as is known as St. David's day.
