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

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 Neil Armstrong first sets foot on the Moon

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

The Contenders

11 The Gateway Arch
12 Barack Obama Barack Obama Barack Hussein Obama II is 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 Romney.

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.

13 Uncle Sam
14 Mount Rushmore Mount Rushmore

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

15 'Don't Tread On Me' Rattlesnake
16 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

17 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.

18 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.

19 Burgers
20 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.
