On November 30th every year, Scotland celebrates Saint Andrew’s Day with a number of other countries around the globe. This important day, which is observed in recognition of Saint Andrew, holds great significance in Scotland as it also serves as their official National Day.
Andrew’s overall importance to Scotland is based on him being the official patron saint of the country, with symbolism of his crucifixion even being present on their national flag. It is noteworthy that in addition to being the patron saint of Scotland, Andrew is also the patron saint of other countries, including Greece, Russia, Ukraine and Cyprus.
Not much is known about St Andrew, who was believed to have been born between 5AD and 10AD in what is now modern-day Israel.
According to the bible, St Andrew became one of Jesus’ 12 disciples, who closely followed him.
Andrew’s brother Simon Peter was another disciple, and they both lived in Galilee, working as fishermen.
However, despite Andrew’s association with Scotland, neither he nor his brother ever travelled to Scotland during their lives.
