The thistle has been a national symbol of Scotland since at least the time of James III. As the Renaissance took hold of Scotland, the thistle became an important decorative motif throughout the country, coming to represent the picturesque and hardy qualities of the Scottish landscape and people. Inspired by the national flower, this brooch joins eight thistles in a ring, representing the eight regions of Scotland.
