Scotland, protection
The thistle flower is the national symbol of Scotland.

With its thorns it represents protection and also nobility of character and birth.

We used waves to represent its leaves as a reference to fertility and birth, shark teeth for the corolla represent strength and the spear heads of the stalk are a symbol of strength and protection.

Requested by Nathan.

A curiosity: it is told that one night the English army was approaching the Scottish camp barefooted not to be heard, and they ended up in a field of thistles, thus alarming the Scottish who defeated their opponents, and on this account thistle flowers have become the emblem of Scotland.
