STORY
Saint Martin was a Roman soldier who later became a bishop in a French town. The most famous legend was, that he had once cut his cloak in half to share with a beggar during a snowstorm, to save the latter from the cold. The goose became a symbol of St. Martin of Tours because of a legend that when trying to avoid being ordained bishop he had hidden in a goose pen, where he was betrayed by the cackling of the geese.
