Photo by Sailor Girl of Saint Vincent, Lisbon’s Patron Saint. Click to better view the details, specially his expression while carrying a sailing ship with two crows on his left hand. * Adenda * The legend says that two sacred crows kept a permanent vigil aboard the ship that carried the mortal remains of the saint from Cape Saint Vincent (Southern Portugal) to Lisbon in 1173. The crows and the ship became later the symbol of the city of Lisbon.
