What does St George have to say about it?

I wondered why so many fancy dress nurse costumes have the colours reversed (white on a red background). Now I know.

Shouldn't that be St Andrew

'The emblem is a special sign of neutrality and protection recognised by all sides during armed conflicts'..the supreme irony that the original wearers slaughtered hundreds of thousands of 'infidels', has not passed me.

Oh dear, I'm sure no offence, or infringement was intended.
Don't we carry this so called "correctness" too far?
Children accept pantomimes for what they are, not what they represent.

Until the law was changed in 1957 the red cross (note the small letters!) was widely used to indicate pharmacies, first aid kits, hospital direction signs, first aider and all manner of first aid related materials.

I don't recall there ever being any confusion between it and the official humanitarian body.
