Learn to draw Saint Andrew, the patron saint of Scotland, with this fun step by step drawing tutorial for kids.
Saint Andrew was one of Jesus' disciples, and the brother of Peter. Both he and Peter were fishermen. Andrew was crucified. Legend says that relics of Saint Andrew were brought to Scotland to where the town of St Andrews stands today, and around the 10th century Andrew became the patron saint of Scotland.
Another legend tells the story of a mighty battle between the Picts and the Scots, led by Oengus II, on one side and the Angles on the other. Oengus was heavily outnumbered and, while praying the night before the battle, vowed that he would make Saint Andrew patron saint of Scotland if he won the battle. The next morning a distinctive white cross of clouds appeared in the sky, which Oengus and his men declared were the sign of the cross on which Saint Andrew died, and sure enough they had a mighty victory. The white cross against the blue sky was adopted as the flag of Scotland.
