This Saturday, (April 23rd), is St. George`s day. To English men and women everywhere, I wish a happy day with this unashamedly patriotic web page. Have your sound on to hear Sir Edward Elgar`s stirring music.

I shall play it again as I break out the Flag of St. George at the top of my flagpole (well, aerial mast!) on Saturday morning.

The Irish celebrate St. Patrick`s day all over the world without fear of offending persons of other ethnic backgrounds. In fact, the Mayor of London helped organise a grand parade this year to mark the event.

That`s fine; as my wife is Irish I celebrated too. What`s wrong with the English doing the same thing?.

Our St. George`s flag will be flying proudly on Saturday.

BUT was he English?

The person does not matter, it's the "icon" and the message behind, what the day stands for.

It's about generating goodwill towards your countrymen and uniting them behind the idealogy that is St.George.

SANTOS7 does he have to be? According to click here St.Patrick was either Scottish or English!

igk I seem to recall that the flying of the flag was banned for the same reason during the World or European cup.

No; St George was not English, and St. Patrick was not Irish. What does it matter?; its what they stand for that does.
