national emblems

as ( partially ) discussed in another thread...
I am Canadian by birth
but American by law

so in an effort to better understand our fellow EF'ers I think we should learn more about each others countries

in an effort to do that I would like to present the national emblems of my two countries..

which do you like best?


my two National symbols would be
The spread Eagle



and the Beaver
