Saint Sebastian is the patron saint of soldiers in general and infantrymen (army) in particular, Swiss guards, conquistadors, but also athletes, archers and police officers. His feast day is January 20.

Saint Sebastian, also known as Saint Sebastian Martyr, was a 3rd century Roman soldier. He rose to fame as a persecuted Christian under the Roman emperor Diocletian. Sebastian was sentenced to death by archers after refusing to renounce his Christian faith. According to legend, he miraculously survived the arrows and was nursed back to health by a pious woman. He later confronted the emperor in defense of religious freedom, but was ultimately executed. Saint Sebastian is revered as a Christian martyr and is often depicted tied to a stake, pierced with arrows.
