Related to this question and this question the English flag and many of its variants from former colonies have the cross of someone who is recognized as a saint by Catholics, George. This cross was used as a flag in the Crusades as a rallying point around the wars fought for their religious reasons (and the Crusades have a particularly painful memory in Judaism as well, even being remember in the Kinos on Tisha B'Av).

Although, on the other hand, the recognition of a saint may not rise to the level of a cross, and the cross in this context may be more viewed as a symbol of the person than of the religion.

Is there an issue waving, recognizing or otherwise honoring the flags that contain this symbol?
