DLTK's Countries and Cultures Crafts for Kids

There is no national animal of Germany.  The black eagle is a national symbol (in other words, it appears on the German coat of arms).  The oak tree is the national tree of Germany.

Although the Netherlands is the country typically associated with windmills, Germany also has many historical windmills.  But for Germany, wind power isn't just a reminder of the past!  Up until 2007, Germany produced the most wind power of any country in the world.  Denmark has the highest percentage of its power provided by the wind.
