My classification scheme divides national / state symbols into four broad categories—names and nicknames, symbols of state, ecosymbols (Nature symbols), and cultural symbols. If it isn’t a nickname, flag, motto, plant, animal, or mineral, you’ll probably find it here.
Cultural symbols are in turn divided into three subcategories. For lack of a better name, I call the larger category “local culture.” The other categories are symbols of the arts and political symbols.
Follow the links above to learn more about a particular subcategory of cultural symbols.
