For nearly 500 years, the Unicorn has been the national symbol (and later, the national animal) of Scotland. In the mid-1500s, the unicorn first appeared on the royal coat of arm of Scotland. Originally, the coat featured a unicorn on either side of the Rampant Lion shield. In 1603, during the Union of the Crowns, King James VI of Scotland became James I of England as well. To acknowledge the uneasy unity between the two countries, the English lion replaced one of the Scottish unicorns. This one-of-each design remains unchanged today. The unease continues, however as myth suggests that the lion and the unicorn — known as mortal enemies — are forever locked in battle for the crown of “King of the Beasts.”
