Happy St. George's Day.

...and National Sovereignty and Children's Day- Ulusal Egemenlik ve Çocuk Bayramı.

Also, the birthday and death day of William Shakespeare 23 April 1564 – 23 April 1616.

These days, it seems like it's a crime to fly the flag of St. George unless it's some kind of special event. It also feels like some people are forgetting about St. George's Day too, what it means to be English- so this is my humble contribution...



A nation who stands, when others fall. Proud to be English.

"St George’s Day was named as early as 1222 – but only one in five people in England actually know what day it’s on.

In 1415 St George's Day became a national feast day and holiday in England. But after the union with Scotland in the 18th century it ceased to become a national holiday.

Now most people only mark the day with a flag.
"

And for all our Turkish friends. The founder of the Turkish Republic, Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, made a present of April 23 to all the world's children to emphasise that they are successor of the future

Re: Happy St. George's Day.

I'm a fully paid up member of the Norh West St Georges day club, we meet once a year for a traditional roast beef dinner a few toasts, I would hazard a guess that there are upwards of a 1000 at the dinner, we often get a reasonable speaker and a crap comedian or vice versa and get pissed without the face paint, it used to be a black tie job but smart attire is the order of the day now.
I wont be attending this year, better things to do but on the day I will be fence painting, tidying the garden and watching Rangers whup Celtic, United Whup Burnley and Arsenal Whup city.
The Labour party are trying to turn the Sts. days into bank holidays but the unpatriotic Tories will have none of it.
Labour wants to create four patron saints' day bank holidays
My St Georges flag flies 24/7 365 days of the year. (they sold the flag poles at Costco)

Re: Happy St. George's Day.

St George's day , you can't keep a good Turk down.

Queen Vic did not want St Georges day , she loved the Empire and wanted Empire day celebrated.

Happy St Georges day everyone.

Re: Happy St. George's Day.

A recent thread here was complaining about the declining standards on this august platform for all things Turkish ,middle England and the gospel according to DM.
Quite rightly this thread celebrates St George's day BUT fourm members forgetting Mrs Queen birthday on the 21st was just another sign of declining standards.Oh yes you can harp on about your brexit and your glorious ability to queue but you forget about Herself .
Shame on you all.!

And who will pay for it? Oh yeah, the employers. Fine for the big boys but the small trader could find that the final nail in the coffin, especially after the Tories new business rates fiasco that may, or probably will, contribute to more of the high street shutting down.

Re: Happy St. George's Day.

Why is it the 6th of May in Bulgaria ? Is it the same St. GEORGE?
