Saint Andrew, patron saint of Scotland, was the first disciple of Jesus. He was born in Bethsaida, on the Sea of Galilee, and worked as a fisherman. Saint Andrew was originally a disciple of Saint John the Baptist and left everything behind to follow Jesus. He preached the gospel in Asia Minor and was martyred by crucifixion in Greece.

He asked to be tied to an X-shaped cross because he deemed himself unworthy to be crucified as Jesus had been. Saint Andrew is depicted bound to an X-shaped cross or holding the Gospel, symbol of his preaching.
