The Lovely Symbolism of the Thistle Flower
The thistle represents overcoming adversity and difficult situations. It’s a symbol of resilience. In Celtic regions, the thistle represents devotion, bravery, determination, and strength. In addition, the thistle is considered a symbol of protection. It is also called the “flower of the sun“ and is used as protection against evildoers. The thistle is often seen on the front doors of Celtic homes. The flower’s pink and purple colors represent nobility and royalty.
