  • Exclusively designed and made for Westminster Abbey, this high quality, window self-cling transfer depicts St. George fighting the dragon.
    This design is from the quatrefoil of the window in Westminster Abbey which was installed to commemorate Sir Benjamin Baker (1840-1907). He was a famous British civil engineer and builder of the Forth Bridge. The window was designed by J. Ninian Comper and unveiled on 3 December 1909.
    Saint George is popularly identified with England and English ideals of honour, bravery and gallantry, but actually he wasn’t English at all. Very little is known about the man who became St George. He is believed to have been born in Cappadocia, now Eastern Turkey, in the year A.D. 270.
    He was a Christian and at the age of seventeen he joined the Roman army and soon became renowned for his bravery. When Emperor Diocletian started persecuting Christians, St. George pleaded with the Emperor to spare their lives. However, St. George's pleas fell on deaf ears and it is thought that the Emperor Diocletian tried to make St. George deny his faith in Christ, by torturing him. St George showed incredible courage and faith and was finally beheaded near Lydda in Palestine on 23 April, 303.
    In 1222, the Council of Oxford declared April 23 to be St George’s Day and he replaced St Edmund the Martyr as England’s patron saint in the 14th century. In 1415, April 23 was made a national feast day.
