St George's Day
St George's Day is celebrated every year on April 23rd, the anniversary of his death.
St George is the Patron Saint of England. He had a red cross on a white background on his shield, now referred to as the St George Cross and depicted on the flag of England.
According to legend St George was a soldier in the Roman Army who killed a dragon and saved a princess.
The only water well in the town of Silene, Libya, was guarded by a fierce dragon. In order to get water the inhabitants of the town had to offer a human sacrifice to the dragon every day. The person to be sacrificed was chosen randomly by lots. On the day St George was visiting the town a princess had been selected as the sacrifice.
St George killed the dragon, saved the princess and gave the people of the town access to water!
