The Scottish Thistle - Beautifully Bold!


The Scottish Thistle is the oldest recorded 'National Flower' and is probably one of the most well-known, and easily recognized symbols of Scotland.
Image
here's a rich history and several legends surrounding the thistle,

One of the best-known thistle legends takes place in the mid 13th century during a surprise invasion by the soldiers of the Norse king, Haakon, at Largs (one of western Scotland's coastal towns).


A sleeping party of Scots warriors were saved from an ambush by an invading Norse army when one of the attackers stepped on a thistle with his bare feet. His outburst raised the alarm, and the Scots defeated the invaders.


The first use of the thistle as a royal symbol of Scotland was on silver coins issued by James III in 1470.
by the 15th century the Scottish thistle was being used as a national emblem.

Pain, protection and pride – pretty much sum up the different representations of the thistle

One Persian legend tells that pearls were created when a rainbow met the earth after a storm. Imperfections in a pearl's appearance were thought to be the result of thunder and lightning.
* because of their shape, pearls have another watery association. Some stories say white pearls are tears shed by the gods. One legend says the tears Eve cried when she was banished from Eden turned to pearls.

* As white gems, pearls remain popular gifts for brides. (It’s even said pearls can keep newlywed brides from crying) :wub:
Image
*Traditionally, the Chinese love golden pearls, believing they bring prosperity and luck. Chinese artworks often depict dragons holding golden pearls in their mouths or claws.
Image
*The pearl represented the journey of the soul or spirit along the path to perfection. In ancient burials, mourners placed pearls in the mouths of the deceased. Since pearls apparently contained the principles of life, they hoped they could assist the dead on their journeys beyond :o

* It is also associated with hidden wisdom, patience and peace. Pearls have been throughout the ages a sign of wealth.
The blue pearl was traditionally associated with love.
Image
*The brown pearl was worn for protection. The pink pearl was thought to promote fame and success. Black pearls was used to enhance wealth. This is the color to wear if you want to feel rich and attract prosperity. The white pearl was a symbol of beauty, purity and new beginnings :afro:

Henry Robert Pearce


Image

meet Henry Olympic Rower who Stopped to Let Some Ducks Swim By and Still Won the Gold Medal :wub: :wub:

Image
it should also be noted that not only was Pearce able to beat oponent by nearly half a minute after coming to a complete stop in the middle of the race, but in that race he also finished with the fastest time of any of the eight competitors that round.

We should also probably mention that this was during the elimination portion of the competition meaning Pearce had risked his chance of winning an Olympic medal for his country in his first Olympics to let the ducks pass.
