Chapel Royal Windsor Castle

Scotland has St Andrew,

Wales has St David,

Ireland has St Patrick

and England has St George.

 

But how many people wear a red rose

on St George's Day?

How many even know the date of St Georges Day

or

that he has been England's Patron Saint

since the 14th century

when he was so designated by Edward III?

 

Windsor Castle

Windsor Castle

Royal County of Berkshire

 

 

Cornonation Coach

Coronation Coach

 

Is it not surprising

that England,

claiming to be a Christian country,

pays so little heed to her patron saint?

 

 

To the extent that a Suffolk landlord applying

for an extension of licensing hours

for the celebration of St Patrick's and St George's Days

was granted the former

but refused the latter!

 

 

St Georges Chapel Royal Windsor Castle

St George Slaying the Dragon

St George slaying the Dragon

 

 

There are indeed dragons still to be slain,

and perhaps the dragon of indifference

is the hardest to overcome.

 

 

So let the red rose of England

take its place with the Thistle,

the Daffodil

and the Shamrock.

 

Windsor Castle
.

 

Let us wear it as a symbol, not of aggressive nationalism,

but of pride in our history

and faith in our future,

and let us fly the flag of St George as a statement

of our Christian heritage.
