Symbols of Scotland
- Honours of Scotland
The Honours of Scotland consist of the crown, the sword and the sceptre. They were retained in Scotland as part of the Act of Union when Scotland, England and Wales formed the United Kingdom. They are on display at Edinburgh Castle. Photography is not permitted in the castle vaults so this is a photo of an information display outside.
The crown was made in this form for King James V in 1540 using gold melted down from the previous Crown.
Now go to the next page for graphics of Heraldic Crests or return to the Main Index.
