The RigaRooster sits high above the rooftops of Riga Latvia and he ...Sees all ... Knows everything ... Tells little ... but, shares what's important

Legend tells that the RigaRooster which adorns the top of the oldest church spires in the capital city of Latvia, Riga, serves as a wind indicator and to guide visitors into the city.

According to Christian tradition, the rooster is also a vigilant defender against evil, and with his morning song he can drive away all bad things.
On top of the oldest Riga Latvia Churches - Dome Cathedral, St. Peter’s, St. John’s and St. Jacob’s – are decorations of roosters (weathercock), not crosses. According to Christian tradition, the RigaRooster is a vigilant defender against evil, and with his morning song he can drive away all bad things. The time before the rooster’s first song is full of evil, and as Jesus told his disciples, “Before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice”. Therefore the roosters should be raised as high as possible, to hear their songs from far away.

It is also true that the RigaRooster on a church steeple serves as a wind indicator. This is very important for Riga as a seaport since the wind direction means a great deal for sailing vessels. Hence RigaRoosters decorate all the churches near the Daugava River. more
