Saint Helier (French: Saint-Hélier, Jèrriais: St Hélyi) is one of the twelve parishes of Jersey, the largest of the Channel Islands in the English Channel. St. Helier is the capital of the Island (although Government House is situated in St. Saviour). The urban area of the parish of St. Helier makes up most of the largest town in Jersey, although some of the town area is situated in adjacent St. Saviour, with suburbs sprawling into St. Lawrence and St. Clement. The greater part of St. Helier is predominantly rural. The parish crest is two crossed gold axes on a blue background, symbolising the martyrdom of Helier and the sea. The two axes commemorate the beheading by Saxon Pirates in AD 555 of St Helier, Patron saint of Jersey. The Parish flag is two crossed gold axes on a blue background.
