Flag of Great Britain Great Britain is a formable country, and can be formed by any nation in the British culture group. Located in the British Isles, it does not exist in any start date until May 12, 1707. Due to it requiring quite a few provinces from Flag of Scotland Scotland and Flag of England England, both of which are western, decently developed countries, it is usually fairly strong when formed.
