This is Saint Andrew, Saint Peter’s brother and one of Jesus’s apostles. He was the first called. And though he wasn’t renamed and had God’s church built on him, he didn’t let it come between he and Peter at the family Thanksgiving get together. In fact, he gave Peter a pink belly just to remind him he was still his big brother.
He was crucified on the “X” shaped cross called the Saltire, which I now know the name of because our youth group recently changed their name to Saltire .
He’s the patron saint of Scotland. Their flag will make a lot more sense to you now. You’re welcome.
