About the Royal Banner of England flag

In heraldry, the Royal Arms of England is a coat of arms symbolising England and its monarchs. Its blazon is Gules, with three lions passant guardant in pale or armed and langued azure, meaning three identical gold lions (also known as leopards) with blue tongues and claws, walking and facing the observer, arranged in a column on a red background. This coat, designed in the High Middle Ages, has been variously combined with those of France, Scotland, Ireland, Nassau and Hanover, according to dynastic and other political changes affecting England, but has not itself been altered since the reign of Richard I.
