The Thistle is Scotland’s National Plant.
According to legend, an invading Viking army was attempting to sneak up and mount a surprise attack upon a Scottish army's encampment but when one of the barefoot Vikings stepped on a thistle he cried out in pain and alerted the sleeping Scots to the presence of the would-be assailants.
Thus, the thistle saved the day! Yay for the thistle!
