The story of Saint Andrew

Saint Andrew is believed to have been one of the 12 disciples who travelled Europe preaching the message of Christianity.

According to the legend, he was crucified in Greece on a saltire cross - shaped like an x - as he did not feel he was worthy of the same cross as Jesus Christ. The saltire cross forms now forms the design of the Scottish flag.

There are several stories about how Saint Andrew came to be the Patron Saint of Scotland. One says that Regulus - an Irish Monk - brought the relics of Saint Andrew to Scotland.
