British Black Watch Badge
$ 44.99

Item ID: British Black Watch Badge

Wooden plaque with elements of the British Black Watch Badge. The plaque is carved with the Latin motto: Nemo me impune lacessit, which means No one "cuts" (attacks) me with impunity. Alternatively translated into English as No one can harm me unpunished. Like the thistle, anyone trying to cut it gets a handful of painful barbs. 

The plaque is not exact to the British Black Watch Badge, but does have the Scottish national flower depicted (the Thistle) along with the cross or X. We have not been able to specifically identify an exact association of this symbol, although it certainly does appear to be British. 


  • The plaque is made of wood with a brass symbol (the cross and thistle). 
  • Measures about 8" x 9".


  • Part of our Estate Collection and in very good condition. It does appear to be vintage, so does have a few marks and light scratches, which really just makes this item look even more authentic and unique.
