Red Ensign is originally a British navy and particularly marine navy flag from the 1700s.

Already in the 1600s it was used by English merchant ships. There was also a Scotish red ensign, and later Ireland joined. Today, there are red ensign flags in many countries of British colonial history such as Canada, India, South Africa, New Zealand and Australia.

The Australian red ensign is a version of Australian flag with a red background.
