The United Kingdom

Let's learn some more about the U.K.

4.The National Tree of U.K. is The mighty Oak.The National Flower is The red Rose. The National Bird: Hmm... America has the bald eagle, France the rooster and India the peacock – but when it comes to national birds, Britain is notably lacking. The Robin is most likely to win the ongoing National Bird vote. Would you like the Robin to win?

6. "What is the weather like?" The British are famous for talking about the weather! It changes very often. A sunny day can become cold and wet within minutes - and then change back. Mostly the climate is mild and wet.

2.The flag of the United Kingdom is red, blue and white. It is called the Union Jack. - Where did THAT come from??? "Union"- because it is a mix of the crosses of the flags of all the nations of the U.K. - Wales is not represented in the flag because it was a part of England. "Jack" because It was usually flown at the end of the ship, from the jack staff.

1. The United Kingdom, also called the U.K., is a group of islands off the northwest coast of Europe - between the Atlantic Ocean and the North Sea. It is a unique country made up of four nations: England, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland. It's a bit confusing as we are going to see!
