For years i've wanted to have one and now i've finally uploaded one.

Because it's Scottish it might not be immediately obvious what you are seeing.

The St Andrews cross ought to be obvious (white cross on a blue background) but what is the rest?

The city scape is Edinburgh City centre looking from The Mound towards George IV bridge and the North British Hotel (renamed now as The Balmoral hotel).
The building/tower, top left of centre is the Scott Monument.

The unicorn, that's the national animal of Scotland.

The Latin and English at the top, that's the national motto of Scotland:
In Latin: Nemo me impune lacessit
Translated: No one provokes me with impunity

The original was sent to me by a very dear American friend about 20 years ago, how she was able to dig up all that and put it into a jpg still blows me away... e.g. at the time i didn't even know Scotland had a motto!

The link works. Just so you know you can open the image in the gallery then item URL on the left to get a direct link to show the image directly. On a forum you would want the BBCode URL links, not the HTML links.

It's a nice looking Avatar and gives a very good description of Scotland, well done to your friend for her work. :)
