Scottish Thistle Cufflink
The Scottish Cufflinks For Men.
The perfect national flower, bold and beautiful, in dramatic relief against a deep, purple background.
The Scottish Thistle is the oldest recorded national flower, an instantly recognisable badge of honour for hundreds of years, despite being a small, prickly wild plant. The reasons for its adoption are shrouded in mystery, though one legend records that its prickliness saved some warriors from an invading Viking army when one of the invaders trod on the thistle and raised the alarm. In fact, there are several varieties of thistle throughout Scotland, and all have some claim to being the national symbol. The Scottish Thistle is therefore about unity, pride and a fierce self-confidence. Perfect for a character cufflink design.
