Legend has it that the city of Silca (Libya) lived in terror of a great dragon that frightened everyone and caused damage to the population and animals. To reassure him, the inhabitants of the town agreed to give the dragon a person in sacrifice and for this, every day, a raffle was held in which the person to be delivered to the dragon was chosen.
One of those days bad luck fell to the king's daughter, a beautiful young woman much admired by the townspeople. Seeing the king's suffering, many citizens offered to replace the princess, but the king refused to let others have to pay for his daughter's fate. In addition, he was aware that his daughter was part of the town and therefore had to follow the rules that had been agreed so far.
The princess walked slowly in the direction of the great dragon. Suddenly, when he least expected it, a young armored knight appeared on a white horse. Upon seeing him, the princess informed him of the dangers he could suffer being in that place, but the knight refused to abandon her and told him that he was there to save her and all the inhabitants of the town.
This knight named Jorge, faced the dragon as soon as it appeared. They fought a great battle until the knight slammed a great spear into the dragon's chest. From the blood shed by the dragon, a beautiful rose bush was born, which Jorge gave to the princess after winning the battle.
Thus was born the tradition that, on April 23, Saint George's Day, all lovers give a rose to their girlfriends. If you want to read to your children the complete story of Saint George the dragon, click here, in SAINT JORGE AND THE DRAGON.
