In 303AD Diocletian all Christian soldiers in the army were expelled and all Roman soldiers were forced to make the traditional pagan sacrifice.
St George refused and denounced the edict in front of his fellow soldiers, declaring he was a Christian.

When he refused his offer, he was beheaded on the 23rd of April 303.
