Light-weight Christmas Tree Decoration with the Scottish Thistle emblem, perfect for hanging on a Christmas tree while celebrating the holiday season. Embossed with “Haste ye Back” on the belt.
The Thistle is the national flower of Scotland. It was adopted after a famous victory by the Scots over the Vikings. The Vikings attempted to sneak up barefoot on the sleeping Scottish camp. On standing on a thistle, a Viking cried out alerting the Scots to the attack.
The belt design is traditionally used to show membership of a Scottish clan and would usually incorporate the heraldic crest granted to the clan chief, and the clan motto. Clan crests can be worn by anyone associating themselves with the clan. Heraldic crests are only granted to individuals.
Although this is a general design and not an official crest that represents any particular clan, it seems fitting to provide a design that can be used by anyone who wants to associate themselves with Scotland, no matter what their family name or heritage might be.
The phrase “Haste ye Back” literally means hurry back, or see you soon, and would often be given at the parting of a friend. This would be perfect as a label to attach to any New Year or first-footing gifts. Visiting friends and the giving of gifts at New Year is sadly a tradition that seems to be dying out, let’s do our bit to keeping it going.
