Symbols and Imagery: shown as an abbot with grapes due to the legend that the men who removed his body from its original grave where very thirsty, but the wine in their only barrel did never finish, regardless of how much they drank.

Patron saint of the city of Saint Gall

Othmar was born in 689 and became monk and then priest, before being appointed abbot of the Benedictine Abbey of St. Gall. He rebuilt the hermitage of the Irish monk Saint Gall and is often referred to as the founder of the monastery. It is said, that he also built the school of the abbey and cared for the sick and poor by building an almshouse and a hospital. Othmar died in exile on the island of Werd in Lake Constance, where he had to flee after false accusations made by two neighboring nobles. When his body was removed from its original grave, it was completely intact
