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. The most iconic and popular statue in American history and maybe in the world, actually. - MostTalented_BoyX

Great choices for your ten! - Billyv

2 Bald Eagle Bald Eagle

It's a bird of prey

3 Stars and Stripes (The Flag)

This sounds ridiculous, but somebody told me today that there was a movement to change the American flag to a rainbow. If that happens, I'm burning the flag and moving to Mexico.

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

4 Washington, D.C. Buildings
5 Empire State Building Empire State Building

The New York State is nicknamed the Empire State, which gave the Empire State Building. - MostTalented_BoyX

6 Liberty Bell

I like the bell

7 Golden Gate Bridge Golden Gate Bridge

I really like this one! - sweetmadi11

8 Neil Armstrong first sets foot on the Moon

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

9 The Hollywood Sign
10 The Motto "In God We Trust"

I wish it were still true.

The Newcomers

? G.I. Joe

The Contenders

11 The Gateway Arch


12 Uncle Sam

He wants you!

13 Barack Obama Barack Obama Barack Hussein Obama II served as the 44th president of the United States of America. He was elected in 2008 after serving in the Senate from 2005-08, beating John McCain and becoming the first African-American to be elected President of the United States. He was elected again in 2012, beating Mitt more.

Worst president ever.

Worst president ever - Hiimme

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

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

14 Superman

Superman is TRUE AMERICAN FOLKLORE! By far 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 our money.
Our Government personifies the Tyrant Leaders our forefathers defined as the Enemies of Freedom and Liberty.
Upon observimg the bald eagles near my home, 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 througjout WWII. In that process, an AMERICAN BOMB destroyed the Original Statue of Liberty in Versace. 7 still exost in France that predate ours, the largest one. It was made and assembled by the French.

15 George Washington George Washington George Washington was the first President of the United States, the Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War, and one of the Founding Fathers of the United States.

Why the HELL is Obama above Washington?!? This is a travesty!

He made this country into a democracy, and almost everyone knows who he is. - Ihaskitty1234

he is good

16 Mount Rushmore 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. - BKAllmighty

17 'Don't Tread On Me' Rattlesnake
18 Obesity

I knew it. I knew someone was gonna go with the stereotypes. - LampSoup

All of Polynesia has a far greater obesity rate, as does Mexico, with the UK catching up fast and also about to pass up the US for obesity.

19 Guns


I would put this one first, it's all you ever hear about on the news - Americans and their guns

If you go by what the moronic news media decides to report on, I suppose Kim Kardashain is a symbol of America.

20 Burgers
21 American "Cheese"

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

If cheese is your biggest complaint, you've got things going pretty well.

22 Hulk Hogan Hulk Hogan Terry Gene Bollea, better known by his ring name Hulk Hogan, is an American professional wrestler, actor, television personality, entrepreneur and rock bassist.
23 Neil Armstrong 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.
24 St. Louis Arch
25 Abraham Lincoln Abraham Lincoln Abraham Lincoln was the 16th President of the United States, serving from March 1861 until his assassination in April 1865. Lincoln led the United States its bloodiest war and its greatest moral, constitutional, and political crisis.
