April calendar pattern

Happy St George's day! Here's the April page of my 2019 calendar, featuring a pattern I designed last year for the Make it in Design summer school 2018 'fiesta folk' brief. I got inspired by English folk iconography from Pearly Kings and Queens, Morris dancers, countryside traditions and the mysterious three hares symbol.
Although most people in England probably don't celebrate St George's day - and often associate the English flag with football hooligans or small-minded nationalism - he is actually a well-travelled, international patron saint and hopefully sometime we can reclaim St George as a welcoming symbol of tolerance and multiculturalism in England✌ "We are far more united and have far more in common with each other than the things that divide us"- Jo Cox
