The Rising Phoenix seems to be created from the flames of the ashes themselves. Across his chest are the words SCOTLAND RISING. On the back is written: A Scot is a Scot, even unto an hundred generations. From the Isles northernmost realm came the Scot, bred with the stoutest will, the canniest wit, and the bravest heart. For reasons dire did Scots forsake kin and kith and set across the face of the earth to fend for themselves, and in the process, they built nations, empires, and new worlds.
