Additional Information: 

The British Red Ensign was established in 1707 by Queen Anne as the civil ensign of Great Britain. First flown by British merchant and passenger ships, the ensign features the British Union Jack against a red background. Also used by the 13 original American colonies before the American Revolution, the ensign was the basis for the United States flag.

Designed and manufactured by Whitehead & Hoag Co. advertisers were able to insert their own backings to this button advertising their own brands.
