The Shrine of Saint Hugh, Lincoln Cathedral
Hugh's primary emblem is a white swan, in reference to the story of the swan of Stowe which had a deep and lasting friendship for the saint, even guarding him while he slept. The swan would follow him about constantly, and was his constant companion whilst he was at Lincoln.

He was canonized by Pope Honorius III on February 17, 1220,[1] and is the Patron Saint of sick children, sick people, and swans.

Feast Day: 17th November
