US 50 State Symbols

State Symbols, Emblems, and Mascots of the Fifty States

Ancient Athens made the violet its symbol. A "National Garland of Flowers" created for the 1893 Chicago World's Fair (made of representative flowers selected by each state) was the inspiration for adopting official state floral emblems. This began a trend that led to the adoption of official state birds, trees, and all the unique state symbols recognized today. England sees itself in the rose, and now each of the 50 states now boasts many more symbols. Are you curious about the official state mammal? The official state fish? Official symbols represent the cultural heritage and natural treasures of each state or the entire United States
