A decorative initial capital letter “L” used at the start of a chapter. This one featuers thistles, clover (or shamrock), and a flower that could be a daisy.

Update: it’s thistles (Scotland), shamrocks (Ireland) and the forward-facing flower is probably meant to be a rose for England judging by the leaves.

More specifically, the flowers are shamrocks and the "weeds" are thistles (I believe). These are two very strong symbols of Scotland, so I presume there is a strong relationship to Scotland.
Thank you. I enjoy this site. I’m an artist and I am teaching now about historic fonts for textile artists. I appreciate the ease of use of the site.

Thank you for writing! I’m glad you like the site.
I’ve updatedthe description to mention the shamrocks and thistles; I think the forward-facing flower is meant to be a rose, for England.
