A classical depiction of Saint Florian in light armor standing over a residence, holding a lance and dowsing out a fire with a bucket. Very exquisite.

Patron Saint of Firemen and chimney sweeps

Feastday: May 4th


The legend of Saint Florian is based on the real life events of a Roman soldier, Florian von Lorch, who was an official of the Roman Empire. Converted to Christianity when Christians were a small minority, Florian was martyred in 304 A.D. He was thrown into the river Ems with a millstone tied around his neck. His body was brought to dry land where an eagle mysteriously watched over him until he was buried. A Benedictine Abbey Church now stands on the place along the river Ems.

It is said that he saved an entire city from flames with only a single bucket of water. Because of this events Florian has been the Patron Saint of firemen and chimney sweeps since the twelfth century.
