Make St. George’s Day our National Holiday – Sign our Petition

Today the English Democrats launch their biggest ever online campaign. Our main website is now collecting the 100,000 signatures needed to force a debate in the Houses of Parliament on St George’s Day being officially recognised as England's national day.

We set up one of the most successful Facebook Causes:- 'Make St. George's Day a Bank holiday! I am English & Proud! (English Democrats' Cause)'. We now have over 705,000 Cause members! Our Cause calls for St George’s Day to be officially recognised as the National Holiday for the English. There is huge national support in England for this issue!

We are now collecting signatures for our E-Petition with the aim of forcing a debate in Parliament. We need 100,000 signatures to make it happen.

You can sign our petition by clicking here or following the link below:

You can also join our Facebook Cause by clicking the link below, please make sure you’ve already signed up to Facebook causes first.

There is massive public support for this issue but we need your signature on our petition to help build up pressure on the politicians to give the English the same rights as the Scots, Irish and Welsh nations enjoy to celebrate their Patron Saints’ Days.


  1. This is a great campaign, let's all give it our full support!

  2. Absolutely! It is certainly the case that more and more towns and villages are celebrating St George's Day of their own accord - which is as it should be. But it would be good if the day itself could be made an official holiday, without officialdom taking over, or deciding just what St George's Day should 'mean'.

  3. Does the EDP support the petition on the HM Govt. e-petition website? I appreciate it was started by a political rival but the cause is paramount here. Encourage your members to sign this petition too -
