The Most Ancient and Most Noble Order of the Thistle "is an order of chivalry associated with Scotland. The current version of the Order was founded in 1687 by King James VII of Scotland (also known as James II of England and Ireland) who asserted that he was reviving an earlier Order.
The Order consists of the Sovereign and sixteen Knights and Ladies, as well as certain "extra" knights (members of the British Royal Family and foreign monarchs).

The Order's primary emblem is the thistle, the national flower of Scotland.
The motto is Nemo me impune lacessit (Latin for "No one provokes me with impunity")..."
