Saint Almath borough is named after the city of Saint Almath, which on its turn is named after Almath of Grimmen, a Heltavanian saint, who lived in the city. Almath died in 1464, and was buried near the city's basilica. In 1481, the basilica was named after him, and in 1502, the city offically took on the name of the famous church, which had become a place of pilgrimage. Prior to this, the city was known as Grimm.
The flag of Saint Almath, the country is identical to that of the city and can be described as a tricolore, with a blue lane flanked by two red lanes. In the left red lane, a white cross, and in the right red lane, a white star. Officially described, the blue and red stand for the colors of Saint Almath of Grimmen's dynasty. The cross indicates the presence of a basilica, and the star was added in 1890, indication of the country officially gaining its independence from Winn.
The currency used in Saint Almath is the Winnster Mearing.
Within Saint Almath, Ingerish is the national language. However, especially closer to the border with Lons, Lonish becomes a more commonly found language. Additionally, especially inside of the capital city, a special Almathi dialect of Ingerish is commonly spoken.
There is one highway, officially a highwayroad, that goes through Saint Almath - the N-151, which turns into the N-15 near Greavemine in Winn. It has three exits in Saint Almath before continuing into Lons - between Saint Almath City and Humsby, between Saint Almath City and Saintschurch, and near Connor. Additionally, part of the ring road around the city is also commonly referred to as a highway, although the speed limit here is 80km/h and it's not officially a highway.
Several provincial roads lie within Saint Almath. Uncommonly, these aren't considered part of the Winnster provincal road network, and are numbered differently - instead of being numbers as R-XXX, they are numbered A-X, where X is a number.
