How and why do I wear a kilt pin?
Ever since Queen Victoria reputedly used her hat pin to secure her kilted skirt modestly on a blustery day, a kilt pin has been worn with a traditional kilt. Its style is entirely a matter of your personal choice. It should be on the right hand side of the kilt, pinned through the front apron only (to prevent tearing) about 4 inches from the bottom of the kilt and 2 inches in from the fringe.

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.

It is beautiful! It was a birthday gift and he seemed to like it. It had the wrong wrapping and the card was missing, though. But the pin is beautiful! I loved it.
