The Luckenbooth is a Scottish symbol of love, dating back to the 17th century and often given as a token of betrothal, affection and friendship. It is usually in the shape of a heart or two entwined hearts symbolizing love and with a crown to symbolize loyalty. Luckenbooths were sold from shops or "locked booths" in Edinburgh's Royal Mile hence the name Luckenbooth.
'...fingers brush softly against, the lovingly draped tartan, that surrounds us. proudly showing our heritage. the breath that escapes the lungs of, the clans, the people, reassuring us that no-one can, take away what is rightfully ours. And as the bagpipes play, as the people dance, and the children sing, upon strong and fertile grounds, our freedom reigns.' ~Lady Willow, from 'Forever Our Freedom' <.> (Celts, Celtic, Scotland, poetry, history)
