St. Andrew's Day is the feast day of Saint Andrew, the patron saint of Scotland. It is celebrated on 30 November as Scotland's official national day.

The Scottish Parliament voted to make St Andrew's Day an official bank holiday in 2006.

Saint Andrew is also the patron saint of Greece, Romania, Russia and the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople. 

Legend has it that the remains of St Andrew were carried to Scotland at some point in the 9th century by the monk Regulus and are still buried in St Andrews.
