52 Weeks Of Color - Thistle



Scottish thistle, native to and beloved in Scotland, is a thorny biennial plant with tall stems and purple flowers on top. People unfamiliar with the flower often mistake them for weeds, and in the United States, they are often classified as an invasive weed.  The thistle has been the national emblem of Scotland since the reign of Alexander III (1249–1286) and was used on silver coins issued by James III in 1470. According to a legend, an invading Norse army was attempting to sneak up at night upon a Scottish army's encampment. During this operation one barefoot Norseman had the misfortune to step upon a thistle, causing him to cry out in pain, thus alerting Scots to the presence of the Norse invaders. The Scottish thistle connotes bravery, courage, and loyalty in the face of treachery. The tough and painful spikes represent endurance and fortitude.
