The United Kingdom consists of four constituent countries: England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Northern Ireland is the smallest part of the UK, contributing only about 3% of its population. It shares a border with the Republic of Ireland, to its south.
*Note – Northern Ireland has not had its own flag for a while. However, the flag pictured below is called the St. Patrick’s Saltire, and it is often used to represent the country.
