The board features interesting detail. The base relief sculpture border depict battle weaponry used in medieval times—broad swords, battle axes, crossbows, spiked maces, and more. The four corners, bear the Templar cross and Rampant Lion. The earliest recorded use of the rampant Lion as a royal emblem was by Alexander II in 1222 (Scotland) and it has been used as a heraldic symbol in arms and banners by the Scottish monarchs, but first used this way by David I at the Battle of the Standard in 1138.
