The legend of Saint George

Hi kids,

St. George is the patron saint of England. His emblem, a red cross on a white background, is the flag of England, and part of the British flag. St George's emblem was adopted by Richard The Lion Heart and brought to England in the 12th century.

He is the patron saint of Catalonia too. St George's Day is on 23 April. By tradition, 23 April is the day for a red rose in the button hole, the national flower.
