Tell a Friend About This EventTell a Friend

St. Andrew is the patron saint of Greece, Romania, Russia and Scotland, where this day is a national holiday. In Greece, a special ceremony is held in St. Andrew's Basilica in Patras, which houses St. Andrew's relics and is built over the location where he was martyred. Upon his death, St. Andrew asked to be killed on a cross in the shape of an "X", as he did not feel worthy do die on a cross similar to Jesus'. This "X", known as St. Andrew's cross, is symbolized on the Scottish Flag.
