Fleur d'Ecosse simply means “flower of Scotland” and Mr Flinois said it first appeared on maps in 1714. The simplest explanation is that it relates to the thistle, Scotland's national flower, as at the time the thistle was cultivated in the region. Today the Corries song Flower Of Scotland has been adopted as the unofficial national anthem of Scotland.
