£7.95
Saint George, the patron Saint of England is celebrated every year, on 23 April. St George’s Day was a major feast and national holiday in England on a par with Christmas, from the early 15th century. The tradition waned by the end the 18th century when England and Scotland united. A traditional custom of St George’s Day is to wear a red rose, although this is no longer widely practised. Another custom is to fly or adorn the St George’s Cross flag. It is customary for the hymn ‘Jerusalem’ to be sung in cathedrals, churches and chapels on St George’s Day or the closest Sunday.
