a symbol of Scottish Freedom and Independence

The Stone of Destiny is the coronation stone upon which all Scottish Kings were crowned and is a national symbol of Scottish sovereignty.  In 1296, King Edward I of England stole the Stone of Destiny from Scotland and took it to London where it remained until 1950 when 4 Scottish college students during their Christmas vacation stole it back for the cause of Scottish Independence. In 1996, the Stone was officially returned to Scotland by the English Government after 700 years in English hands and now sits in Edinburgh Castle.

The Scottish Declaration of Independence

While Scotland is one of the oldest nations in Europe, on April 6, 1320, the leaders of Scotland (Scottish clergy, nobility, and King Robert the Bruce) signed the Declaration of Arbroath, reaffirming Scottish sovereignty as an independent nation. This was done after Scotland won what is considered the "First War of Scottish Independence" against England. It is remembered each year in the United States, every April 6th as "National Tartan Day."  In 1997, the U.S. Senate formally recognized the Scottish Declaration of Arbroath as the model for the American Declaration of Independence. One-third of the American Founding Fathers were from Scottish ancestry, including Thomas Jefferson who authored the Declaration of Independence.

  • April 6, 2020, is the 700th Anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Arbroath.
