The firework is named after Saint Catherine of Alexandria who, according to Christian legend, was condemned to death by "breaking on the wheel". When she touched the wheel it miraculously flew to pieces.
The largest Catherine wheel ever made was designed by the Lily Fireworks Factory of Mqabba, Malta. The Catherine wheel had a diameter of 32.044 m (105 ft 1.6 in), and was lit on 18 June 2011, the eve of the annual feast of Our Lady of the Lilies.
