St George’s Day is the annual celebration in England of the country’s patron saint, St George. It is celebrated on April 23, because that is the widely-accepted date of his death. St. George became a mythic figure of legend who was announced Patron Saint of England in 1348. Today’s Doodle by London-based visitor craftsman Alice Pattullo celebrates St. George’s Day, which became an English feast day in 1415.

April 23 is additionally the day when the Order of the Garter, England’s most noteworthy honor of knighthood, is granted by the English monarch with a medal bearing a picture of St. George fighting with the legendary dragon. Truth be told, the Order of the Garter banners showed in St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle were a wellspring of motivation for Alice’s last Doodle idea: “I love the simple applique graphics and the bold heraldic colours,” she notes.
