Kilt Pin - Scottish Sword of State
The most important sword in Scotland, the Sword of State is one of the Honours of Scotland, alongside the crown and sceptre, also known as the Scottish Crown Jewels. It was presented by Pope Julius II to King James IV in 1507, alongside a bejewelled hat. It has been a symbol of the Scottish kingdom ever since, still carried before the opening of parliament and other state occasions.
