Description

St George Bank was formed in Sydney, New South Wales, in 1937 and is now a subsidiary of Westpac Banking Corporation. Despite its name, the logo of the bank fails to depict St George himself, but instead has a stylised head of a fire-breathing dragon, alluding to the popular tale of St George killing a dragon. The tale is thought to have been brought to Western Europe by crusaders returning from the Holy Lands in the eleventh century.

The logo can be found on their website: http://www.stgeorge.com.au/
