Re: @ Khaptain our national animal, the unicorn

From https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Lion_and_the_Unicorn:

"The Lion and the Unicorn are symbols of the United Kingdom. They are, properly speaking, heraldic supporters appearing in the full Royal coat of arms of the United Kingdom. The lion stands for England and the unicorn for Scotland."

Also worth noting that the unicorn is chained. I'm no student of heraldry, but I think the statement intended there is fairly clear!
