The Legend of Saint George Legend has it that a long time ago, in Montblanc (Tarragona), a ferocious dragon capable of poisoning the air and killing with its breath, had frightened the inhabitants of the city. The inhabitants, frightened and tired of their ravages and misdeeds, decided to calm down by feeding a person the day they would be chosen by lot. After several days, bad luck befell the princess. As the princess left her home and headed for the dragon, a knight named St. George, in shining armor and a white horse, suddenly appeared to go to her rescue. St. George raised his sword and pierced the dragon, finally freeing the princess and the citizens. From the dragon’s blood sprouted a rosebush with the reddest roses ever seen. Saint George, triumphant, plucked a rose and offered it to the princess.
