  1. An alternative variant of the Royal coat of arms is used in Scotland: [click to view image].
  2. There is no authorised version of the national anthem as the words are a matter of tradition; only the first verse is usually sung.[୧] No law was passed making "God Save the Queen" the official anthem. In the English tradition, such laws are not necessary; proclamation and usage are sufficient to make it the national anthem. "God Save the Queen" also serves as the Royal anthem for certain Commonwealth realms. The words Queen, she, her, used at present (in the reign of Elizabeth II), are replaced by King, he, him when the monarch is male.
  3. Under the Council of Europe's European Charter for Regional or Minority Languages, Scots, Ulster Scots, Welsh, Cornish, Scottish Gaelic and Irish are officially recognised as regional or minority languages by the British Government for the purposes of the Charter.[୨] In addition, the Government provides some services and publishes documents in Welsh.[୩][୪][୫] See also Languages of the United Kingdom.
  4. "This category could include Polish responses from the country specific question for Scotland which would have been outputted to ‘Other White’ and then included under ‘White’ for UK ... ‘White Africans’ may also have been recorded under ‘Other White’ and then included under ‘White’ for UK."
  5. European Union since 1993.
  6. Some of the devolved countries, Crown dependencies and British Overseas Territories issue their own sterling banknotes or currencies, or use another nation's currency. See List of British currencies for more information
  7. This excludes some of the UK's dependencies. See Time in the United Kingdom#British territories
  8. Except two overseas territories, Gibraltar and the British Indian Ocean Territory.
  9. Excludes most overseas territories
  10. The .eu domain is also used, as it is shared with other European Union member states. Other TLDs are used regionally
  11. Usage is mixed. The Guardian and Telegraph use Britain as a synonym for the United Kingdom. Some organisations, including the British Government, prefer to use Britain as shorthand for Great Britain
  12. The United Kingdom does not have a codified constitution but an unwritten one formed of Acts of Parliament, court judgments, traditions, and conventions.What is the UK Constitution?, The Constitution Unit of UCL, retrieved 6 February 2020
