Celebrate Great Britain and its culture with our Glass Flag Ornaments. Delicately beautiful, this British ornament is sure to add a festive touch to your home.
Each UK Flag Glass Ornament is styled in the tradition of European blown glass. Once the glass is hand-blown into a mold and shaped, it is then silvered. Silvering helps to create a reflective property and depth of color in the ornament. After the ornaments are dry, they are then hand decorated with paint and glitter. As each of these British, Kurt Adler, flag ornaments is hand-painted, you are guaranteed to receive a unique ornament since no two will look exactly the same.

Short history of the Union Jack: In 1606, a new flag was created to symbolize England and Scotland's regal union. Incorporating the Flag of England (a red cross with a white background) and the Flag of Scotland (a white saltire, or X, with a blue background), this flag was used until 1801, when the 1800 Act of Union merged the Kingdom of Ireland with the Kingdom of Great Britain. A red St. Patrick's Cross (symbolizing Northern Ireland) was added to the existing flag, creating the flag we recognize today.
