Saint George and the Dragon

Saint George is the patron saint of England.

He has been the patron saint of England since the 14th century. 

St George's Day is the anniversary of his death, which is on April 23rd. He was a soldier in the Roman army who protested against the Roman torture of Christians and was killed for his beliefs.
 St George is the patron saint of a number of places, such as Bulgaria, England, Ethiopia, Georgia, Greece, Portugal and Russia.

According to legend, the only well in the town of Silene was guarded by a dragon. In order to get water, the inhabitants of the town had to offer a human sacrifice every day to the dragon.

The person to be sacrificed was chosen by lots.
On the day that St George was visiting, a princess had been selected to be sacrificed. However, he killed the dragon, saved the princess and gave the people of Silene access to water.
