Legend has it that a thistle once saved Scotland. As the story goes, a group of Norse invaders tried to take an area from the Scots by night. They crept up as silently as they could, hoping to take the Scots by surprise while they slept, but one of the Norsemen stepped on a thistle. When he screamed in pain, the Scots awoke and defeated the invaders. Thistle pins have long been worn in honor of this tale, and now, you can wear one on your kilt with this Scottish Thistle Kilt Pin made from high quality chromed silver alloy.
