Whether to use "Union Flag" or "Union Jack" is a matter of debate.
When the first Flag was introduced in 1606, it became known simply as "the British Flag" or "the Flag of Britain". The royal proclamation gave no distinctive name to the new Flag.
One theory goes that for some years it would have been called just "the Jack", or "Jack Flag", or "the King's Jack", but by 1674, while formally referred to as "His Majesty's Jack", it was commonly called the Union Jack, and this was officially acknowledged.
It is possible that the term "Jack" occurred because of its regular use on all British ships using the "Jack Staff" (a Flag pole attached to the bow of a ship). Members of the Royal Navy only refer to the Flag as the Union Jack when it is flying on their ships, commonly phrased as 'at sea'. The article "Union Flag" is part of the Wikipedia encyclopedia.
