The Union Jack has been published monthly since April 1982. Our readership now exceeds 220,000 throughout the USA. We serve a devoted readership comprised primarily of British expatriates, ranging from recent immigrants to war brides who relocated to the States a half-century ago, as well as a growing number of American Anglophiles. All of our readers, whether aged 25 or 75, share a common desire to maintain strong ties to Britain and the British community in America.
Union Jack’s regular advertisers include specialty shops and wholesalers, pubs, restaurants, immigration attorneys, insurance providers, financial services, shipping companies, travel agents and a variety of mail order gift suppliers, all of whom seek the unique and lucrative link Union Jack provides to one of the USA’s largest yet most assimilated ethnic markets. Our advertisers range from small ‘mom and pop’ business to larger businesses.
