The official or political name of the country is THE UNITED KINGDOM OF GREAT BRITAIN AND NORTHERN IRELAND. At the United Nation and in the European Parliament, it is usually known by a shorter name: THE UNITED KINGDOM or the abbreviation THE UK. The country is often called BRITAIN. The poetic name of the country is ALBION. The geographical name of the country is THE BRITISH ISLES because the country occupies the islands, which are called the British Isles.
The Anthem of the UK God save our gracious Queen! Long live our noble Queen! God save our noble Queen Send her victorious, Happy and glorious, Long to reign over us, God save the Queen. Thy choicest gifts in store On her be pleased to pour, Long may she reign. May she defend our laws, And give us ever cause, To sing with heart and voice, God save the Queen.
The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland has four historic parts: England with its capital in London, Scotland with its capital in Edinburgh, Wales with its capital in Cardiff and Northern Ireland with its capital in Belfast. The floral symbol of England is the RED ROSE. The red rose has been its symbol since 1485.
The Welsh symbol is a vegetable called the LEEK (or, on occasion, the flower, the daffodil). The patron saint of Wales, David, ate only leeks and bread. In memory of this Christian saint, the leek became the symbol of Wales. Daffodils whish burst into flames by the 1st of March celebrate the reserved Welsh saint.
