Symbols of Middle Barael

This is the current seal:

This is the seal from 1948-1967:

In 1947, the first year of the modern state of Middle Barael, there was no seal, and many of the other symbols of Middle Barael, including the flag, either did not exist, they were very different, or they were direct copies of already existing flags and symbols.

The national animal is the Puma (Mountain lion, cougar, catamount), and they frolic freely in our lush chaparral and groves.

The national flower is Echinacea (Echinacea purpurea), also known as the Eastern Purple Coneflower, the Purple Coneflower, or the Hedgehog Coneflower.

There is no official national bird, but popular unofficial ones include peacocks, hummingbirds, sparrows, robins, bluejays, cardinals, swallows, and mockingbirds.

The national tree is the Saucer Magnolia (Magnolia x Soulangeana). It is not a naturally occurring tree in Middle Barael, but has been popular since the mid-19th century.

However, Grape Trees are actually far more prevalent and important and popular with Wine being a large industry of Middle Barael, an entire province even being named the Wine Country.

These are of course unofficial, but popular in certain online communities.

This is the normal “Middle Ball-rael”.

This is a Middle Ball-rael displaying MB’s high intelligence and public education scores.

Finally, here is Middle Ball-rael protesting for action against Climate Change, complete with a sign in Scanian reading “There is no Planet B” and a Forest Globe on the sign showing Middle Barael.

These designs are actually traced to have originated in Lura, a fellow Forestian nation.
