Legend has it that if it was not for a single thistle, Scotland might have come under the role of the Norse. It's said that an attempted clandestine invasion was thwarted when one of the invaders stepped on a thistle, shouted in pain and woke the Scottish warriors. For centuries, thistles have been symbols of Scotland as a result. The Scottish Thistle Kilt Fly Plaid Brooch shows off a beautifl thistle in gleaming silver alloy surrounded by a halo of thistles and is just right for securing a fly plaid. We also have a thistle kilt pin to match in our collection of kilt accessories.
