HISTORY OF THE UK
The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland has been a combination of the countries of England, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland since 1922 and is arguably the most influential country in modern history. From the nations that arose from its colonies to its staunch and stubborn resistance during World War II, to its cultural revolutions that swept the world, the U.K.’s fingerprints are all over the modern world.
The iconic “Union Jack” was adopted in 1801, combining the flags of its original member states: the English red & white cross, the Irish X-shaped red & white cross, and the Scottish blue & white X-shaped cross.
Over the years the United Kingdom has given birth to many exciting and controversial subcultures. The Beatles, Churchill, Game of Thrones, pubs, punk music, Lord of the Rings, Doctor Who, Monty Python, Top Gear - just some examples of what Great Britain has given to modern culture and history.
