Union Jack of old England

Oh dear. Someone's gone all patriotic but forgotten their history.

Others I find interesting:

Triple Alliance - I had to check the dates, but this would be Germany, Austria-Hungary and Italy rather than the South American one.
Old Style - Well, of course
Windsor uniform - To begin with I thought this was a school uniform, but the school in Windsor I was thinking of is Eton, so now I don't know
The Ancient Masher - googled this and found this. Nice ruff and cane!
Undergraduate - Obviously it's not jeans and a t-shirt. Academic robe and hat?
Helvetia - This lead me to the wikipedia National Personification page, which is interesting.

One of my sources has a Masher costume for a little boy.

Uncle Sam is the national personification which springs to mind, being an American, but I was also aware of John Bull and Marianne.

Oh, and Windsor uniform.
