St George Art Photos

St George was martyred (c303) while fighting in Palestine. He came to symbolize knights. In the twelfth century a story arose that he had rescued a princess by subduing a dragon. He took the dragon back to the town it menaced and would only slay the dragon if the townspeople converted to Christianity. George is the patron saint of England, Germany, Portugal, Genoa & Venice.
Symbols: armoured knight slaying dragon.
