|A very long time ago when
Scotland was ravaged by Viking invaders, a group of Scottish fighting men
were resting overnight in a field. Unknown to them, a raiding party was
preparing to attack this group of Scots, under cover of darkness. As the
attacking Vikings approached the encamped Scots, they stood on a patch of
Thistles with their bare feet and, of course, let out cries of pain as the
thorns dug deep into the soles and toes. The Scots, having been awakened
by this rammy, were able to fight off the attackers. So, from that day ,
the Thistle has been adopted as Scotland ' s National Emblem. !
