Standing figure of the saint with her emblems of the sword and wheel. Saint Catherine of Alexandria was one of the most popular of medieval saints. She was martyred in the 4th century for her Christian belief by order of the Emperor Maximinus. According to legend she was condemned to die on a wheel, but, at her touch, this instrument of torture was miraculously destroyed. She was then beheaded with a sword, after which her body was miraculously transported to mount Sinai, where later a church and monastery were built in her honour. The badge depicts the saint holding her emblems of a wheel and sword.
