Switzerland does not have a national animal. There are many popular animals in the country, such as the cow and the blackbird, but none have ever been chosen to represent the nation as a whole.
Switzerland is a confederation of 26 member states. Each state has its own coat of arms and many of them depict an animal as their heraldic symbol. For example, the heraldic symbol of Switzerland's capitol of Bern is the bear. The canton of Uri's coat of arms depicts a bull, and Schaffhausen's has a goat. Switzerland also doesn't have an official national motto or national flower.Learn More
