Chainsaw Carvings of Symbols that Represent America; Bald Eagle, Flag & More

America has many symbols that represent America and freedom. Do you know what all these symbols are and what they represent? Carve Me A Bear! Chainsaw Carvings want to go over just a few of the symbols so you know a little bit more about American symbols and can choose what ones you like the most.

Bald Eagle

In 1782 the Founding Fathers chose the bald eagle to be the national bird of the United States. We know that the bald eagle has a white head, yellow beak, and big brown body, but what else do we know about the bald eagle? Eagles don’t necessarily catch their fish. You may see a bald eagle harassing Osprey that has hunted its food. It will go after that bird until it drops its prey in midair, then the Eagles will swoop down and catch the prey that the osprey has dropped. Bald Eagles may even snatch the fish directly out of the talons of the bird. These birds were very close to being extinct because many people hunted them. But about 40 years ago, a law was passed to protect them, and they have made a comeback. They are very large birds. The females are bigger than the males. Their wingspan can be about 8 feet across. You can find them throughout most of North America.

North American Bison

The North American bison became the national mammal in 2016. Many people also know them as Buffalo. In North America, bison are the largest land-dwelling mammals. The only predators for adult bison are wolves and grizzly bears. Males can get up to 2000 pounds and females to about 1100 pounds. They will live about 12 to 15 years. They have horns but they are relatively short. They have long dark brown colored hair on their legs, head, and shoulders, but shorter hair on their back end. You will find these animals in herds, which are led by the oldest female. You may also see birds on top of bison. These birds are feeding on the insects that get on the bison’s coat.

Flag of the United States

Everybody knows what the American flag looks like. But do you know what everything on the flag means? The flag has alternating red and white stripes. There are 13 of them symbolizing the 13 colonies. Then there are 50 white stars which represent the 50 states. The colors also have a purpose, red is for valor and bravery, White is for purity and innocence and blue is for vigilance, perseverance, and Justice. Over the years you may have noticed that the flag is sometimes at half-staff. When this happens it is a day of remembrance, such as Memorial Day, there has been a national tragedy, or there has been the death of a military, government official, or first responder.

Statue of Liberty

We all know the Statue of Liberty is a lady holding a torch in the New York harbor. But what do you actually know about the Statue of Liberty? The Statue of Liberty was a gift from France and it represents freedom and democracy. On October 28, 1886, it was dedicated but did not become a monument until 1924. The Statue of Liberty stands about 15 stories tall, that is not including its pedestal. The crown has seven rays and represents the Earth’s 7 seas. While the torch that the Statue of Liberty holds is a symbol of enlightenment or lighting the way to freedom. The main symbols of the Statue of Liberty are freedom, hope, and equal opportunity.

Liberty Bell

Besides a bell that has a crack in it, what is the liberty bell? The Liberty Bell located in Pennsylvania is also known as the state house bell. It was originally at the state house steeple but is currently at the Liberty Bell Center. The Liberty Bell is a symbol of independence. The purpose was to inform the public about gatherings and proclamations and to call parliamentarians to legislative sessions. On the bell, it has inscribed a verse from the bible that says “Proclaim liberty throughout all the land until all inhibited thereof.” But the strangest thing about the bell is that nobody is sure how the bell first cracked.
