TapHappy Birthday Great Britain

Royal Standard 1707
Thanks to Paul James for the picture.
On this day 300 years ago, Great Britain was formed by the Act of Union between the thrones of England and Scotland. Queen Anne was on the throne at the time and a period of relative peace and stability was beginning. The standard also reflects interests in France and Ireland one of which would be quietly dropped and the other would give no end of trouble in later years.
