    Default Art personifications of your country/nation. Post some examples here.

    In order to keep it in a separate thread.

    An example: Belarus as depicted in Hetalia: Axis Powers

    Speaking of national personifications I only know of Holger Danske.

    I Danmark er jeg fdt, dr har jeg hjemme,
    der har jeg rod, derfra min verden gr.
    Du danske sprog, du er min moders stemme,
    s sdt velsignet du mit hjerte nr.
    Du danske, friske strand,
    hvor oldtids kmpegrave
    str mellem blegrd og humlehave.
    Dig elsker jeg!
    Danmark, mit fdreland!

    Johnny Appleseed. This was back in the 19th century when cider was plentiful and America's #1 native alcoholic beverage. Now we have to import it from England, and the one brand from Vermont is more expensive than the imported. Irony.

    It's Polonia, female personification of the Polish Kingdom.

    Legend has it that Otger Catalo summoned the Nine Knights of the Land to reconquer the country that had been taken by the Saracens. Otger and the nine brave lords from nine Catalan regions gathered their swords and swore before Our Lady in the Pyrenean Monastery of Ripoll, that they'd fight until death to reconquer it. The spirit of one of the knights, Count Arnau, still haunts the area...

    Some Catalans would attribute later the origin of the name Catalonia to that legendary father of the land, Otger Catalo. (False, of course)




    Another important historic guy, Guifr el Pils (Wilfred the Hairy), also father of the land according to another legend, who would have created the Catalan flag while agonizing, asking the Frankish emperor to move his four fingers down on a golden shield after touching the blood of one his wounds.




    Finally, although not exclusively Catalan, the legend of Saint George (Sant Jordi), the princess and the dragon, is well-known in Catalonia and celebrated every 23rd of April. He is Catalonia's patron saint, and the day is regarded as the real Lovers Day here. Consequently, Saint George and usually dragons in general can symbolize Catalonia on some occasions.
