NORTHERN IRELAND



'There's a dear little plant that grows in our isle,
'Twas St Patrick himself, sure, that set it;
And the sun om his labor with pleasure did smile,
And with dew from his eye often wet it.
It thrives through the bog, through the brake, and the mireland;
And he called it the dear little shamrock of Ireland
'
Green Little Shamrock of Ireland, Andrew Cherry

Edge Inscription: DECUS ET TUTAMEN
Translation: An ornament and a safeguard

SCOTLAND



'O flower of Scotland
When will we see your like again
That fought and died for
Your wee bit hill and glen
'
The Flower of Scotland, Roy Williamson

Edge Inscription: NEMO ME IMPUNE LACESSIT
Translation: No one will attack me with impunity
