What really is offensive is the suggestion that the flag of St George might be offensive! The United Kingdom is a relatively recent (and flexible) construct: whilst the Union Flag may have its origins in the 1603 Union of the Crowns, it was not formally adopted until 1801, long after the parliamentary union of 1707. The fact that many Americans fail to appreciate the difference between England, Great Britain and the United Kingdom is a pretty poor excuse for amending national descriptors added originally by those who know better. I am a citizen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, and am certainly British but, first and foremost, I am English, being able to trace my ancestral roots back to well before any union with another country. Whilst I consider Wikitree's obsession with badges and stickers to be infantile, I should certainly not wish anyone to attach a historically inaccurate flag to any of my ancestral profiles!
