Towers of San Marco (left, the winged lion) and St. Theodore (right, with slain dragon), patrons of Venice. St. Theodore was the patron saint early on until some industrious Venetian merchants stole the remains of St. Mark from Alexandria and brought him to Venice to be the new patron saint in 828 A.D.
