Saint George is presented on the traditional way: riding white horse and slaying the dragon. The icon is the epitome of the victory of good over evil. St. George is respected as patron of warriors. The Orthodox church commemorates him on 6th may, when is the officil holiday of Bulgarian army. He is symbol of courage, will and valor. George comes from Greek "georgos" and means "farmer".

The icon is made in Bulgaria, according to the Bulgarian orthodox painting traditions from 16th c. Approximately at that time Bulgarian icon painting started to turn to reality and the role of didactic rules began to diminish.
