Thoughts to think about on the day after St. George’s Day

If this (the cross of St. George) represents England (and it does):



...and this (the cross of St. Patrick) represents Northern Ireland (and it does):



...and this (the cross of St. Andrew) represents Scotland (and it does):



...and this (the flag of St. David) represents Wales (and it does):



...then why does the British flag:



contain no yellow or black?

What are the Welsh? Chopped liver?

Inquiring minds want to know.

Wales has no explicit recognition in the Union Flag as it had been a part of the Kingdom of England since being annexed by Edward I of England in 1282 and its full integration by the Laws in Wales Acts 1535–1542, and was therefore represented by the flag of England.

Y.P., so then you're saying that Wales is chopped liver, just previously assimilated chopped liver?
