Following the Treaty of Paris, 1763, the Royal Union Flag was flown over British North America. Originally combining the English red vertical St. George Cross on a white field with the Scottish white diagonal St. Andrew's cross on a dark blue field, in 1801 the Irish red diagonal Fitzgerald Cross on a white field was added.
