For those outside the US, what are some recognizable symbols or traits of the USA?
Each country seems to have a few things that are symbols of that country’s culture or past. For example, when I think of “the Dutch” they have windmills, wooden shoes, tulips, etc… Switzerland has mountains, neutrality, the white cross on a red background, those handy knives… Spain has flamenco dancers, bull fights, fiery passion, conquistadors…
They’re generalizations, but are recognizable as being of their country.
What symbols or traits of the US and its people would the rest of the world recognize?
