The Scottish Thistle: The Legend and Meaning

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.

  1. Luann

    I love the design of this brooch and it is solid and well-made. I am making an art piece with multiple kilt brooches and it is a lovely addition with great Scot flair.

  2. Mark H

    I got this item because it was an economy item, and it is better than I was expecting. Also, it is larger and heavier than I expected. Great quality! And the antiqued laquer finish really adds to its look. Really satisfied with my purchase here!

  3. Stephen M

    A great Brooch. Solid, well made and attractive as well as being inexpensive. It is just a matter of taste but I like this better than the more expensive ones with the large “jewels” in them.

  4. David

    Wow. Truely antiqued and beautifully cast. Thanks!

  5. Bob

    Heavy and well built, this inexpensive brooch did the job it is designed for, with no issues.

  6. Brian from Brooklyn Park, MD

    A truly great brooch, solid won’t bend and the pin is sharp and goes through heavy wool / wool blends with ease. The finish is good and looks good with any tartan you want to wear.
