The Scottish Thistle: The Legend and Meaning
The “Gold Accents” finish consists of a golden thistle border encircling the clan crest in the bottom of the quaich.
Most people know and easily recognize the thistle as the symbol of Scotland. Researchers believe that Scots chose the thistle as their first national flower.
Legend has it that a field of thistles saved a party of sleeping Scots warriors from an ambush by Norse invaders. When one of the Norse attackers trod on a thistle field with his bare feet, his cries and screams roused the Scots. The ambush became ineffective, and the Scots defeated the invaders. The Scots’ victory was all thanks to the thistle’s thorns! They then adopted the thistle as the symbol of Scotland. It represents the bravery, devotion, durability, strength, and determination of the Celtic people.
