Hi, my name is Jessica and I'm an artist and today we're going to draw the Union Jack. So we're going to do a nice rectangle and you've probably seen this before, it's a British flag. It's got a big kind of a plus sign looking shape in the middle like so and that part is red so you can color that red. And then next, oh, it has, basically it has this white trim and the white trim comes up along the side but then it goes down into an angle and in that angle there is another piece of red but the red isn't connected to the original plus sign. It's kept kind of separate and we've got that on all four corners so the white comes down and then the white goes out to the corner and then there is a red sort of a line that goes to the edge and we've got one over here, same deal, from the corner along the side and red and then over here, doot, doot, doot, doot, red. Now, once we've got that taken care of, we have these blue triangle pieces that are in here and you all know how to draw a triangle, three sides, easy as can be. Just color that in just like that and when we're done, we've got the Union Jack. So just take your marker and go back in, color in, finish up, make the little finishing touches on your flag and that's pretty much it. Yeah, just straighten out those pieces and before you know it your Union Jack is done. Nice work.
