Ever wondered why Scotland had the Thistle as it's national flower.
Well lots of countries have flowers as their national emblem. When they were giving out flowers England picked the Rose, And Wales picked the Daffodil , and Ireland picked the Shamrock. There are many others but when it was Scotlands turn to pick there was only the Thistle left, Thats no good said the Scot's it's prickly old weed, well we don't have anything else they said, , Well we don't want it , So they said, "you can have it for free", And thats why the Scot's have the Thistle !!!
