Saint George Cross
St George's Cross (or the Cross of St George) is a cross associated with Saint George since the time of the crusades.
It was worn by English soldiers as an identification from the early years of the reign of Edward I (1270s), and perhaps originated a few years earlier, in the Second Barons' War (specifically in the Battle of Evesham of 1265, during which, according to chronicler William Rishanger, Simon de Montford observed that the king had taken the idea of having his soldiers marked with a cross from him).
St. George cross is part of modern British flag.
