Saint Andrew the Apostle is the patron Saint of Ukraine, and Kiev, since he preached near the Black Sea and the Dnieper River, all the way to Kiev, where churches honor Saint Andrew.
Andrew is also well known as patron of Scotland, and so, the patron of golf and golfers since Saint Andrew’s Golf Course is universally known as one of the most spectacular in the world. Saint Andrew was a close friend of Jesus. He was ultimately crucified but asked to have a cross different than the one used on Jesus. A diagonal cross was created and the cross of Scotland retains the X cross shape upon which Saint Andrew the Apostle suffered his crucifixion.
