Bagpipes - This ancient wind instrument has been famously identified with Scotland, and is found in cultures all over the world. The unique sound has stirred the hearts of Scots through the ages - marching into battle, mourning the fallen and evoking memories of home and romance to ex-patriot and descendant Scots everywhere.
Map of Scotland - This map is the shape of Scotland, showing its coastline and the border with England - emphasizing that Scotland has a separate national identity within the United Kingdom.
Stag - Known as 'Monarch of the Glen' - these wild deer roam the highlands of Scotland, and the stags with their massive antlers often look as if they are kings of all they survey, standing proudly on the high ground sensing their surroundings.
Scottish Thistle - The thistle was used by the early Kings of Scotland as their personal heraldic crest and is borne by the Arms of the Realm and by a number of ancient Scottish clans and families as part of their coats of arms. In 1687 James II instituted the Order of the Thistle as a distinct Scottish Order of Knighthood. This order is now one of the oldest of all surviving British orders.
Lion Rampant - The ruddy lion rampant in his field of treasured gold has been the Royal Arms of the Kings of Scotland since the days of Alexander II. The treasured lion still retains its individual status as a sovereign coat of arms and continues to play an important role in symbolizing Scots Heraldry.
Luckenbooth - Hearty shaped brooches, in vogue in the early 1700's were traditionally exchanged between lovers on betrothal and subsequently pinned to the baby's shawl to protect the child from 'evil spirits'. The name comes from their sale in Luckenbooths around St Giles Cathedral on the Royal Mile in Edinburgh.
Celtic Interlacing Knotwork - Celtic knotwork interlacings were popular in the Pictish School of Celtic Art. As a symbol of continuity, these interlacings represented by one continuous line, symbolize the hope of eternal life and have come to be accepted as a talisman of longevity.
