George the Victorious is the main Saint for Georgians. Well, in the present times, I think for Ukraine, this is the most important Saint.
In Georgia, St. George's Day, which, together with the Mother of God, is considered the heavenly patron of the country, is celebrated twice a year - on May 6 and November 23.
The November date has the status of a public holiday and an official day off.
George the Conqueror is a rider striking a snake, depicted on the national coat of arms of the country.
According to religious tradition, the holiday was founded by Saint Nino, a Christian educator of Georgia. It is believed that she was a relative of St. George the Victorious, especially venerated him and bequeathed his love to the country she converted to Christianity.
The cult of St. George in Georgia appeared at the dawn of Christianity. The first church in honor of St. George was built in Georgia in 335 by King Mirian, at the burial place of St. Nino. Starting from the 9th century, the construction of churches and chapels in honor of St. George became massive. In the Middle Ages, in different parts of the country, 365 prayers were held in the name of St. George, according to the number of days per year.
Victory to us all and Happy George the Victorious day to all!
