ST. GEORGE'S BANNER.





(Patchwork Puzzles)

contemplating the familiar banner of the patron saint of our country. We
all know the red cross on a white ground, shown in our illustration.
This is the banner of St. George. The banner of St. Andrew (Scotland) is

(Ireland) is a similar cross in red on a white ground. These three are
united in one to form our Union Jack.
Now on looking at St. George's banner it occurred to me that the
following question would make a simple but pretty little puzzle.

arm of the cross be if it is required that there shall be used just the
same quantity of red and of white bunting?
