It does indeed say "St. George's Day and Shakespeare's Birthday" in the ALT/TITLE text but according to Wikipedia, 23 April 1616 is the date of Shakespeare's death. Although baptised on 26 April 1564, his birth date is apparently unknown:

<< Born baptised 26 April 1564 (birth date unknown)
Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire, England
Died 23 April 1616
Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire, England >>
