The Scottish Lion is the ancient heraldic emblem of the King of Scots and therefore it should technically only be used by royalty. It was supposedly first used in the century by King William the Lion ,King of the Scots from 1165 to 1214 .
Couldn't resist another lion -- this one is so beautiful and regal. Also love the quote, since the Holy Idea of the Eight is Holy Truth. “The truth is like a lion. You don’t have to defend it. Let it loose. It will defend itself.
