If your country were represented by food, what food would you like your country be represented by?
And same question with an animal and a flower/plant/tree.
For my country (Spain), I would pick:
A food: Spanish Omelette. Simple, nice, and... who doesn't like potatoes?! :P
An animal: I'd like it to be the Iberian Lynx.
A plant/flower: the red carnation.
