Agreed. While it is obvious to me that the St. George Cross represents 
English, I think it would be more obvious to more people if you used the 
generally accepted Union Flag to represent English.

Of course, when I say "generally accepted" I mean "everyone else seems 
to do it that way". No point changing what people are used to in the 
quest for origin "purity".
