    Hi, all!
    Do You know, what are the national symbols of every country?

    If You try to find out these symbols of country, which isn't Yours, You may sometimes get mistaken information. The reason of this post is to get more authentic information from You, dear collegues.

    I started some other countries, I'm not familiar with, so these needs repairs.

    Please add 3 to 6 symbols (not more or less). (because my account is full, I'll feed "National symbols.xls" from other account.) :)

    Hi kusurija, I've eliminated some entries under "Italy" and added, if you are interested, two new categories: "Patron Saint" and "National Anthem", let me know...

    Why there isn't a line for the UE? I think it could be rightly included.

    I am working on the images/MP3 (for the Anthems, why not?) project, wait a bit.

    Bye

    Hi, Eclisse,
    I counted about 17 symbols related to Italy, what is rather more than 3 or 6 :D .
    It is pretty nice, if only such information doesn't take too much place. After You added this information, file information amount increased about 25% :eek: ! After adding yet depended areas and languages in multi-language states, the number of lines may exceed 300 or 400.

    But no one (till now) can place larger than 200 kb file!
    So feel free to post new thread on this theme, may I'll parcipitate too...;).

    Thank You, Cabeza tuna, very much. I'll reload new file National symbols23.xls including Your information as kusuria2 after some time. Btw shouldn't be there Eucaliptus instead of Ecucaliptus (maybe typo)?

    Eclisse I should ask other members, if they also need European Union to be included. In my personal opinion, it is not so necessary, as all members/parts of it is/may be incluced. So in mean time I'm waiting for opinions of others.
