The stag was the symbol for the Celtic god, Cernunnos. Also known as ' The Great Horned One" he was often portrayed with horns. He was the god of the forest and wild animals. He was also seen as the god of plenty. In France Saint Giles was said to have been with a deer during his years as a hermit. The deer was said to provide him with milk.
