Excuse me, are Scotland, England and Wales three different countries? Or parts of Great Britain? And where`s Wales` flag? What about Northern Ireland and its flag? it is a part of Britain, isn`t it? Why is Ireland there? Oh, so many questions, though.

England, Scotland, and Wales are the three countries that make up the island of 'Great Britain' - the largest island of the 'British Isles'. The U.K. is 'The United Kingdom Of Great Britain And Northern Ireland'. The N. Irleland flag is represented on The Union Flag. The Welsh flag is not, as at the time of the union, Wales was part of England. Ireland is not part of the U.K., as it is a republic.

The three different flags are for three different countries. The Union flag is for the UK.

I was just trying to be funny. I know what they stand for obviously!  :P

Excuse me, BlueMeanie, and how long have Scotland, England and Wales been 3 countries? This is a revelation to me. Is it because they have separate assemblies now? Or has total devolution taken place? Or is it just wishful thinking of their population? Can they inter the EU separately?

I don't know if you meant it like this Jane, but this can be taken in a pretty funny way ... wikipedia says "inter" means "to bury". So "can the countries of Great Britain bury the EU separately?" . I don't know a lot about British politics, but aren't there a lot of people there that want to do just that?   :)

Oh, alexis! I can`t stop laughing!!!  ;D    If all the countries of Britain can bury the EU separately, what will the effect be if they do it all together? Yeah...!

Well, certainly, i meant enter the EU. I saw the mistake, but didn`t know that meaning, otherwise i would have corrected it. Instead I thought: Ah, it`s clear all the same...However, the consequences are absolutely different!!!
