St George's Day
St. George's Day is the feast day of the patron saint St. George celebrated in England. But who was St George, and why do we celebrate this day?
St George is considered a hero for slaying a dragon terrorising England. However, St George's life is mostly a mystery. He is thought to have been a Roman officer from Cappadocia, an accent country occupying an area where Turkey is now and died in Lydda, where modern Israel is now.
So how did St George become a patron saint celebrated in England? St George built a reputation for virtue, honesty and valour during his life. George's courage led to the army displaying him on banners to inspire troops in battle with the red cross on a white background. Known as the St George cross from the 9th century. During the 2nd world War, King George created a new award for acts of extreme courage during extreme danger known as the George Cross.
