Viking invasions of Scotland were carried out for almost
500 years. After many unsuccesful daylight attacks the invaders
planned a suprise attack in darkness. They crept, barefoot,
before dawn, towards the Scottish defenders.
Fortunately for the Scots, one Viking stood on a Thistle and
his agonised cry of pain roused the defenders who set upon
the foe and the few survivors fled to their longships. From
that day the Thistle became the emblem of Scotland.
