More about English flags

I was just looking at Willem van de Velde, the Elder's drawing of the last pass at the Battle of Scheveningen, and I was struck by the fact that there was an English ship depicted with a large flag at the main, that had the large, red St. George's cross on a white flag. I would not have expected that, but it is clearly shown.
