Top Ten Greatest Symbols of America

America is a free country! The country of opportunity. The country to feel alive! I may be Canadian, but that doesn't mean that I don't know anything about other countries. I've been in America a bunch of times. I've been in states like Florida, Minnesota, New York, Missouri, California, Idaho, etc.. I even know that there's a bunch of symbols that represents this great country. These are the ones...
The Top Ten
1 Statue of Liberty

This work of art was given by the French. It is the most iconic and popular statue in American history and maybe in the world, actually.

2 Bald Eagle The bald eagle is a bird of prey found in North America. A sea eagle, it has two known subspecies and forms a species pair with the white-tailed eagle.
3 Stars and Stripes (The Flag)

It's the American flag that I'm talking about, baby!

4 Washington, D.C. Buildings
5 Empire State Building The Empire State Building is a skyscraper situated in Midtown Manhattan, New York City. Completed in 1931, it stands 1,454 feet tall and was the world's tallest building until 1971. It is famous for its Art Deco architecture and has been featured in numerous films.

New York State is nicknamed the Empire State, which gave the Empire State Building its name.

6 Liberty Bell
7 Golden Gate Bridge The Golden Gate Bridge is a suspension bridge connecting San Francisco to Marin County, California. Completed in 1937, it is an iconic symbol of San Francisco and is renowned for its Art Deco design and "International Orange" color.
8 The Hollywood Sign
9 Neil Armstrong first sets foot on the Moon

This is still the greatest technological achievement in the history of the human species.

10 The Motto "In God We Trust"
The Contenders
11 The Gateway Arch
12 Uncle Sam
13 Superman

Superman is true American folklore! By far, he is the most recognized of all superheroes. Any person in almost any nation knows the red and yellow "S" stands for hope.

"In God We Trust"? Only on our money. Our government personifies the tyrant leaders our forefathers defined as the enemies of freedom and liberty.

Upon observing the bald eagles near my home, I find they are more scavengers than birds of prey. We should call them Hatted Vultures.

The Statue of Liberty, a gift from France. To thank them, we turned their homeland into Swiss cheese throughout WWII. In that process, an American bomb destroyed the original Statue of Liberty in Versace. There are still seven in France that predate ours, the largest one. It was made and assembled by the French.

14 George Washington George Washington (February 22, 1732– December 14, 1799) was an American military officer, statesman, and Founding Father who served as the first president of the United States from 1789 to 1797. Appointed by the Continental Congress as commander of the Continental Army, Washington led the Patriot... read more

He made this country into a democracy, and almost everyone knows who he is.

15 Barack Obama Barack Hussein Obama II (born August 4, 1961) is an American politician who served as the 44th president of the United States from 2009 to 2017. He was the first African-American president of the United States... read more

I know people who were saved by Obamacare, which helped pay their hospital bills while fighting cancer. They would have been in immense debt otherwise.

The most outstanding political figure of the 21st century and for sure one of the most significant presidents of the United States.

16 Mount Rushmore Mount Rushmore National Memorial is a massive sculpture carved into Mount Rushmore in the Black Hills region of South Dakota.

I was sure this was going to be in the top five. Seeing that it wasn't even on the list kind of shocked me.

17 'Don't Tread On Me' Rattlesnake
18 G.I. Joe
19 Obesity

I knew it. I knew someone was going to go with the stereotypes.

20 Guns

What can I say? Americans like their Second Amendment. What we don't like is when someone misuses it.

21 Burgers
22 Abraham Lincoln Abraham Lincoln (February 12, 1809 – April 15, 1865) was an American lawyer and statesman who served as the 16th president of the United States from 1861 until his assassination in 1865. Lincoln led the nation through the American Civil War and succeeded in preserving the Union, abolishing slavery,... read more

No other man in the world has ever come close to resembling Honest Abe. He is an easily identifiable symbol of America as a relatively new country. Forever, he will remain this indelible symbol of America during some of its most positive and hardest growing pains.

23 Confederate Battle Flag
24 Neil Armstrong Neil Alden Armstrong was an American astronaut and aeronautical engineer who was the first person to walk on the Moon. He was also a naval aviator, test pilot, and university professor.
25 American "Cheese"

American cheese shouldn't even be considered cheese. I don't know what's worse, this or veggie cheese!
