    • The Story of St.Andrew
    • Andrew was one of Jesus’ disciples
    • After Jesus died Andrew went to Greece to tell everyone about the teachings of Jesus.
    • The Roman ruler was cross with Andrew for teaching about Jesus.
    • Andrew was tied to a big wooden cross with ropes until he died.
      • Andrew carried on talking about Jesus for two whole days before he died.
    • 300 years later a man called Regulus had a dream which told him to carry the bones of St.Andrew to the end of the Earth.
    • Scotland was so far from Greece he thought it was the end of the Earth.
    • He landed on the East Coast of Scotland. He buried the bones and built a church on top.
    • Today there is a town on the spot called St.Andrews.
    • The Scots made Andrew their Patron Saint and chose as their flag a Saltire (Greek) Cross on a sea blue background.
    • Now every year on November 30 th Scots remember St.Andrew.
