Who was St. George?

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 in the 12th Century. The kinds soldiers wore it on their tunics to avoid confusion in battle.

St. George was a brave Roman soldier who protested against the Roman's torture of Christians and died for his beliefs. The popularity of St. George in England stems from the time of the early crusades when it is said that the Normans saw him in a vision and were victorious.
