Happy St Georges Day
St George Killing the Dragon by Raphael
Of all the national days in the UK, St Georges is probably the least celebrated, so I thought that I would have a run through of somethings English for the information of the rest of the world.
The national Saint of England is St George, he was not English. As far as I know, in terms of modern day geography, he was from Turkey and killed the Dragon in Syria.
The national flower of england is the red rose and a lot of wars where fought to make it red an not white.
The English Oak (Quercus robor)
England’s national tree
Oh! the shame
But in my opinion the best thing that England has shared with the world
For all consenting adults to enjoy is
The traditional school caning scene
