So, you all know that every country has its own national animal, right? At least you know yours. LoL.
I mean, even I wasn’t aware of all of them. But while talking to a friend about the national animal of ‘Bhutan’, which is a dragon, by the way, I came to wonder how many countries actually had a mythical creature as their national animal?
Soon, I found out that indeed,
there are a few countries which still have the coolest mythical national animals.
Now, before I sink into the Imaginarium of my creative thoughts to wonder what the world would be like, with those majestic beings alive, you need to check out the mythical national animals of these countries-
1. Austria- Austrian Bundesadler “Federal Eagle”
2. Belgium – Leo Belgicus “Belgic lion”
3. Bhutan- Druk “Thunder Dragon”
4. China- Chinese dragon
5. Czech Republic – Double-tailed lion
6. Germany – Bundesadler “Federal Eagle”
7. Greece – Phoenix
8. Hungary – Turul “Falco cherrug”
9. Indonesia– Garuda
10. North Korea- Chollima
11. Russia- Double-headed eagle (Traditional Coat of Arms)
12. Serbia- White eagle
13. UK- Unicorn (Scotland)
14. UK- Y Ddraig Goch (Welsh Dragon Wales)
Imagine national animals that looked like creatures straight out of the movie ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them’. I would cry out of happiness if that much magic was in the air. Just saying. But just think for a moment, wouldn’t it be super cool to watch a lion with wings? Or a majestic horse with two heads?
I know, I know. The world would be such an interesting place! Right? Ok, enough dreaming, let’s get back to reality. Shall we?
