Wartime scene is depicted with bombers and fighter aircraft and parachutists. Anti-aircraft batteries and warships return fire. " The Union Flag or Union Jack is the national flag of the United Kingdom and it is so called because it embodies the emblems of three countries united under one. Sovereign – the Kingdoms of England and Wales, of Scotland and of Ireland.
The flag consists of three heraldic crosses. Those of St. Patrick, St George and St Andrew. The Welsh dragon does not appear on the Union flag. This is because when the first Union flag was created in 1606, Wales by that time was already united with England and was no longer a separate principality".
