Celtic Jewelry Symbol Meaning: Symbolizes tenacity and strength.The thistle is the national flower of Scotland, and emblematic of their fierce independance. Historically, it is believed to have saved an entire army by warning them of an impending attack by warriors advancing barefoot under darkness of night. When one stepped on a thistle and cried out, it warned the Scots and they were victorious in defeating the enemy.
