Unicorn Coloring Pages
Unicorn may be just a fantasy beast but it does exist in many people's imagination. And just like Dumbledore says to Harry, "just because something only happens in your mind, it doesn't mean they're not real." Lol. Did I quote that correctly? Anyway, unicorn did show up in one of the Harry Potter movie sequels. I can't exactly remember which one, probably the first one, but the unicorn is found dead by Hagrid and the kids. He said that someone had killed it to take its blood to drink. He said that unicorn blood may gives longevity to those who drink it but killing unicorn is a grave sin since this beast is very pure or something like that.
Anyway, Unicorn has gotten famous again since My Little Pony was broadcasted. One of the main characters, Rainbow Dash, is a pegasus. She's a unicorn with wings and the fastest pony in all Equestria. Now if you've been looking for some unicorn coloring pages, you can find some of them below. Some of the unicorns have no wings while some are shown to be flying by flapping their wings up and down. Some of them look cute and chubby while some others look strong and rigid but also have elegant hair. I'm sure your kids will love these Unicorn coloring pages.

Unicorn Fun Facts
- The first known depiction of a unicorn—found in the Lascaux Caves of modern-day France—dates to around 15,000 BCE! Or so people thought, until they realized that the so-called Lascaux unicorn had two horns, drawn confusingly close together.
- It is believed that the unicorn is attracted to purity and innocence, giving rise to the legend of the virgin and the unicorn. According to this ancient legend, only a virgin sitting naked under a tree holds the power to capture a unicorn. Seeing her beauty and pureness, the unicorn reportedly will venture close and lay down beside the virgin placing his head in her lap, where the hunter can then kill or capture him.
- The earliest record of unicorns in Western literature belongs to Greek historian Ctesias. In the 5th century BCE, he wrote that the beast had a white body, purple head, blue eyes, and a multicolored horn—red at the tip, black in the middle, and white at the base.
- The unicorn is thought to hold the power to divine truth and will pierce the heart of a liar with its horn. According to Jewish legend, the unicorn can easily kill an elephant, a testament to its immense power and strength. It is said that even if the unicorn is captured, it can never be tamed.
- In his travels, Marco Polo believed he stumbled across unicorns. He wrote, “They are very ugly brutes to look at. They are not at all such as we describe unicorns.” That’s because they were actually rhinoceroses. Also, Genghis Khan reportedly decided not to conquer India after meeting a unicorn, which bowed down to him; he viewed it as a sign from his dead father and turned his army back.
- The Unicorn has been a part of the Royal Seal of Scotland since the 1300s. When James became king of both Scotland and England, he redrew the Royal Coat of Arms to include both the Lion of England and the Scottish Unicorn.
