   St. Giles Cathedral, situated on the Royal Mile, Edinburgh, was first consecrated in 1243 AD. It is named for the 7th century hermit monk who is the patron saint of the city. Within the cathedral is the Chapel of the Order of the Thistle.
   The Chapel is the seat of the ancient chivalric company of the Scottish knight. The design for this cross was inspired by the various thistle motifs that adorn the pews and finely carved woodwork within the cathedral.
