St Andrew is the patron saint of Scotland. Every year on November 30 Scotland celebrates St Andrew's Day.
St Andrew along with his brother Simon Peter were fishermen and disciples of Jesus Christ. He was crucified by the Romans and legend has it that Andrew's relics were taken to Fife, Scotland in the eighth century for safekeeping.
The Pictish King Oengus I built a monastery in what is now the town of St Andrews. The University of St Andrews was developed in the town and is the oldest university in Scotland and the third oldest university in the English speaking world.
Andrew is associated with the Saltire which is the national emblem and flag of the Scots. Legend has it that in 832 AD King Oengus II prayed to Andrew the night before a crucial battle against the Northumbrians. On the day of the battle a Saltire cross, an X appeared in the sky above the battlefield. The Picts took this as a sign from Andrew and they were subsequently victorious in battle.
He is patron of fishmongers, gout, singers, sore throats, spinsters, maidens, old maids and women wishing to become mothers.
On 30 November in Scotland and worldwide St Andrew's Day is celebrated with feasting and music in true Scottish style.
