The Order of the Thistle

Post  Elena on Thu May 31, 2012 10:42 pm

The Queen recently conferred upon her grandson the Duke of Cambridge the highest order of chivalry in the Scottish kingdom.

To quote:
The Most Ancient and Most Noble Order of the Thistle is the most senior Order in Scotland and the second-most senior in precedence in the United Kingdom, after only The Most Noble Order of the Garter. The order in its current version was founded in 1687 by James VII and II of Scotland and England, who claimed it was a revival of an earlier Order. The order’s emblem is the thistle – the national flower of Scotland. Its motto is” Nemo me impune lacessit” (“No one provokes me with impunity”). Unlike most other honors, appointments to the Order are entirely in the personal gift of the Sovereign and are not made on the advice of the Government.
