Saint George! Patron Saint of England (and Georgia) and venerated as one of the 14 Auxiliary Saints. It is beleived he was only recognised as the Patron Saint of England after Edward III made him the patron of the, then, newly founded Most Nobal Order of the Garter in 1348!

What many people don’t know is that Saint George is also the patron saint of scouting. He was chosen as the qualities of St George reflect those desirable in a Scout: responsible, truthful, devoted to duty, brave, noble and dedicated to helping others.

Every St George’s day, Scouts remind themselves of their Promise and Scout Law.

Take a moment today, to remind yourself of your promise and law.
