St George’s Day Facts
For those of you who don’t know who St George is I wanted to put together a few key facts.
- St George is the patron saint of England, Venice, Genoa, Portugal, Ethiopia, and Catalonia among others.
- He was not born in England, in modern-day Turkey, and died in modern-day Israel in 303AD.
- St George didn’t even visit England!
- The St George cross was not used to represent England until much later.
- Of course, George didn’t really slay a dragon as the story is told! In fact, that was added centuries later.
