Ο Άγιος Γεώργιος (280 - 23 Απριλίου 303) ήταν στρατιώτης της Ρωμαϊκής αυτοκρατορίας και αργότερα αγιοκατατάχθηκε ως Χριστιανός μάρτυρας. Αποκαλούμενος από την Ορθόδοξη Εκκλησία Μεγαλομάρτυς και Τροπαιοφόρος, είναι από τους δημοφιλέστερους αγίους σε ολόκληρο το χριστιανικό κόσμο. Η μνήμη του τιμάται στις 23 Απριλίου ή για τις Εκκλησίες που πηγαίνουν σύμφωνα με το Ιουλιανό ημερολόγιο, όπου εάν η ημέρα συμπέσει πριν την Ανάσταση, μετατίθεται τη Δευτέρα της Διακαινησίμου. Ο Άγιος Γεώργιος θεωρείται Άγιος της Καθολικής, της Αγγλικανικής, της Ορθόδοξης, της Λουθηρανικής και της Αρμενικής Εκκλησίας. (πηγή: wikipedia)

Saint George (Greek: Γεώργιος, Geṓrgios; Latin: Georgius; between 275–281 AD to 23 April 303), according to legend, was a Roman soldier of Greek origin and officer in the Guard of Roman emperor Diocletian, who was sentenced to death for failing to recant his Christian faith. As a Christian martyr, he later became one of the most venerated saints in Christianity and in particular the Crusades. In hagiography, as one of the Fourteen Holy Helpers and one of the most prominent military saints, he is immortalised in the myth of Saint George and the Dragon. His memorial, Saint George's Day, is traditionally celebrated on April 23. (See under "Feast days" below for the use of the Julian calendar by the Eastern Orthodox Church.) Numerous countries, cities, professions and organisations claim Saint George as their patron. George's parents were Christians of Greek background, his father Gerontius (Greek: Γερόντιος, Gerontios meaning "old man" in Greek) was a Roman army official from Cappadocia, and his mother Polychronia (Greek name, meaning she who lives many years) was a Christian and a Greek native from Lydda in the Roman province of Syria Palaestina. Accounts differ regarding whether George was born in Cappadocia or Syria Palaestina, but agree that he was raised at least partly in Lydda. (source: wikipedia)
