Did you know that the Unicorn has been the national animal for Scotland for centuries? Unicorns are associated with purity, innocense,strength, and power. They’re also known to be proud and unconquerable. Since the 15th Century, monarchs of Scotland have used the unicorn in their coat of arms.
But there are also references to Unicorns in the Old Testament-Really!
In Numbers 23:22 and 24:8, the Bible speaks of the strength of a unicorn. Deuteronomy 33:17, Psalms 22: 21 and Psalms 92:10 speak of the unicorn’s horn. Job 39:10 and 39:10 both speak of the unicorn not tilling the earth. In Psalms 29:6, the unicorn is likened to a young calf skipping, while Isiah 34:7 mentions unicorns in the same context as bulls and bullocks. All of these references are in the King James version of the Bible and it indicates that they were not probably not vision that evolved into the Scottish National Animal which is closer to our creation above.
