The Lion and the Unicorn
Were fighting for the crown;
The Lion beat the Unicorn
All about the>

Some gave them white bread
And some gave them brown;
Some gave them plum cake
And drummed them out of town!

nursery rhyme

The Lion and the Unicorn are featured as the supporters on the Royal Coat of Arms. I have heard it said that the Lion is the British throne, and the Unicorn is the Scottish throne, at war for centuries until united by James I/James VI (depending on where you're from).
