Scottish Thistle 27oz Clear Glass Stein:
This large stein is engraved with an original Scottish Thistle design. The story behind how Scotland claimed the thistle to be it's national flower is as follows:
It was during the rein of Alexander III (1249 -1286) that the thistle became the Emblem of Scotland. It is said that King Haakon of Norway's Army landed at the Coast of Largs under cover of darkness to surprise the sleeping Scots. Haakon's soldiers removed their footwear to approach stealthily. But as they stalked in the night, one of men's bare feet felt the sting of the thistle's guard and shrieked out in pain. The Scottish Clansmen were alerted of the advancing Norsemen and defended their homeland.FREE PERSONALIZED ENGRAVING:
