In answer to yesterday’s St. Patrick’s day puzzler, the Patron Saints of Scotland, England and Wales are: Andrew, George and David.
|St Patrick – Ireland||St Andrew – Scotland||St George – England||St. David – Wales|
Whats particularly interesting, which my old boss Simon turned me on to, is the fact that Union Jack (technically the Union Flag) is actually made up of the flags of the three of the four guys above:
Flag of St George + Flag of St Andrew + Flag of St Patrick = Union Jack
Turns out the reason St David didnt get his flag included is because Wales was a principality and not a kingdom. Thats a bummer cause I think it would have been totaly cool to have a dragon right in the middle of the Union Jack!
Pau for now…
