In Christian hagiography Saint George - The Saint who killed the Dragon (ca. 275-281–April 23, 303) was a soldier of the Roman Empire, from Anatolia, now modern day Turkey, who was venerated as an Islamic and Christian martyr.

Immortalised in the tale of George and the Dragon, he is the patron saint of various countries and cities as well as a wide range of professions, organisations and disease sufferers.
