Bit hard seeming as I already live here. I would like to point out that the flag on here is for the ENTIRE UK and not the English flag. All 4 countries in the UK have their own flag, but the Union flag shown here is for all the 4 countries...which explains why we are more often called the UNITED KINGDOM.

Bury St Edmunds Abbey ruins, Suffolk, England, UK. In 1214, the Archbishop of Canterbury and 25 barons swore at the high altar that they would make King John sign the charter that would become Magna Carta. He signed it (under protest) at Runnymede the following year. The top and bottom photos show the high altar where the barons made their vow; the middle engravings mark the spot and list the 25 barons. The town’s motto is “Shrine of a King; Cradle of the Law”.
