The Union Jack (
The current design dates from the Union of Great Britain and Ireland in 1801. The flag consists of the red cross of St. George (patron saint of England), edged in white, superimposed on the Cross of St Patrick (patron saint of Ireland), which are superimposed on the Saltire of St. Andrew (patron saint of Scotland). The history of the nation's flag was made from a union of the flags of England, Ireland, and Scotland. At the time the flag was created, Wales had become part of England so in respect to each of their cultures, they are represented on either the front or back of the flag.
It's appearance is a flag, on the front is the current national flag of the United Kingdom and on the back is the primarily white and green flag that was once used as the national flag of Wales.
Elizard herself stated that only royalty can use this spell. Union Jack can execute commands that "override" the use of any Curtana. In the case of which Queen Elizard used it, she had all the power divided equally among anyone who considered themselves English or loved England. It also seemed the spiritual item was capable of broadcasting Elizard's speech to everyone as well.
This spell uses the foundation of taking to the extreme the question of "What was it that gave one the right to be a king or a queen?", regarding that the place of "the Royal Family" has been won through history by those who fought for their country or even by those who wanted to become citizens of England and were willing to call England home.
It should be noted that Queen Elizard's usage of the Union Jack spell is the first time ever that the spell has been used in history; and is for that Kanzaki Kaori suspects that the spell is much more deep than simply "a spell that the royal family can use" and thus Kanzaki even states that the spell was probably possible in the end thanks to Laura Stuart's having a hand on its procedures.

British Royal Family ArcEdit
- Main article: British Royal Family Arc
In the morning of October 18th, during the British Halloween, Queen Elizard and Archbishop Laura Stuart made contact with Charles Conder and had him prepare the Union Jack, mixed in with the normal displays in the British Museum, as part of their plan in dealing with Carissa and the Curtana Original. The preparations were expected to be about halfway done during the half-hour break in hostilities while London was covered in Telesma after the Overloading of the Curtana Original at 2.30 AM.
In the final battle with Carissa, after crossing swords with her daughter, Elizard threw away the Curtana Second and used the Union Jack to distribute the Curtana Original's power among the people of the United Kingdom, while also addressing her subjects. This ultimately helped to create an opportunity which was used to destroy the Curtana Original, ending the coup d'état.
