The unicorn is the national animal of Scotland and meant to be the strongest animal in the world. When Robert the Bruce succeeded in driving out the English in 1314 (Battle of Bannockburn) , he added the chain to the unicorn motif to say that he was pretty dang strong himself. I love the leafy floral design at the top, too. A door at Holyrood Palace. .
