Scotland's deep connections with the unicorn stem from its Celtic culture. Celtic mythology believed unicorns to represent innocence and purity while associated with chivalry, pride and boldness. One particularly significant aspect in the heraldry of the unicorn is the gold chain which is used to restrain the beast. The chain wraps around the animal, perhaps depicting the enormous power of the mystical beast and the control the Scottish Kings had over them.
