The thistle is an ancient Celtic symbol for nobility, and was adopted by Scotland as a national emblem.  Scottish legend tells of a time when the thistle plant alerted the Scottish army of an oncoming assault by Norse invaders.  One of the Norseman stepped bare-footed upon the plant and shouted in pain, giving their position away.  It is a national symbol of protection and prickly determination.
