Scottish Thistle, the national emblem of Scotland, one thistle is said to have saved an entire Scottish army. A thousand years ago, during the Vikings invasion of Scotland, an advancing enemy warrior stepped on a thistle and cried out in pain inadvertently waking the sleeping Scotsmen. Scottish King Kenneth III was so grateful that he adopted the thistle as his nation's emblem. It became known as the Guardian Thistle, with the motto, Nemo me impune Laecessit, meaning "No one provokes me with impunity."
