  • Product Description

    This pewter cap badge features a set of old-fashioned gears as the "clan crest". The motto is the famous phrase "Illegitimus Non Carborundum" -- Latin for "Don't let the bastards grind you down!" Cast in Scotland, this is a great accessory for any steampunk or anyone who wants to show a wee bit of attitude, mischief and optimism. The back of this pin has a pin lock with a secure clasp closure. It would make a great gift for any kilt wearer.

    This is a clever cap badge that anyone can wear (Posted on 7/27/2020)
    Good Looking badge  Lance
    This is a good looking badge with a nice solid feel and decent heft. I have not worn it on a cap, yet, but bought it to wear with my American Heritage kilt. I have two Balmorals I can wear it on. Maybe I should buy more Balmorals so I don't have to take the cap badges off...? (Posted on 3/13/2020)

    Very nice badge and I love the sentiment! I'm not Scottish and wanted a cap badge so this is perfect! (Posted on 9/6/2019)

  • Fun Facts

    Why is the thistle the "Flower of Scotland"?

    According to a legend, an invading Norse army was attempting to sneak up at night upon a Scottish army's encampment. During this operation one barefoot Norseman had the misfortune to step upon a thistle, causing him to cry out in pain, thus alerting Scots to the presence of the Norse invaders. Some sources suggest the specific occasion was the Battle of Largs, which marked the beginning of the departure of King Haakon IV (Haakon the Elder) of Norway who, having control of the Northern Isles and Hebrides, had harried the coast of the Kingdom of Scotland for some years.
