Brooch - Scottish thistle as a national symbol of Alba (Scotland). Second only to tartan, nothing quite says 'Scotland' like this humble, prickly weed. A legend has it a sleeping party of Scotish warriors were saved from ambush by an invading Norse army when one of the enemies trod on the spiky plant. His anguished cry roused the slumbering warriors who duly vanquished the invader and adopted the thistle as their national symbol.
