Happy St Mungo’s Day

Our Latest News

Today, the 13th of January is the day that we celebrate St Mungo’s Day.

While for many in the UK, this is not a big deal, but in Glasgow, St Mungo is a very important part of the history of the city. And as a Glasgow born company, we like to mark the day and reflect on the impact that St Mungo has had on our home twon.

Who is St Mungo?

St Mungo is the Patron Saint and founder of Glasgow. Born in Fife, Mungo began his missionary works on the banks of the River Clyde and built his church nearby on a site that we now know as Glasgow Cathedral.

In order to become a Saint, it is necessary to prove that you have performed a miracle during your life which St Mungo managed to accomplish four times, now immortalised in this poem…

Here is the bird that never flew

Here is the tree that never grew

Here is the bell that never rang

Here is the fish that never swam

These four references, the bird, the tree, the bell and the fish can be found in the Glasgow City Council Crest.

So Happy St Mungo’s Day Everyone.
