National Personifications by humon National Personifications by humon
(Download for full size)

First, letís make this clear: I did not make any of these up. They are all old national personifications of countries that I just re-drew.

I wanted to see what they looked like next to each other. :D

From left to right:
Lady of the Mountains (Iceland)
Ola Nordmann (Norway)
Holger the Dane (Denmark)
Mother Svea (Sweden)
Finnish Maiden (Finland)
Adelita (Mexico)
Uncle Sam (USA)
Mother Canada (Canada)
Jock Tamson (Scotland)
Kathleen Ni Houlihan (Ireland)
John Bull (England)
Dame Wales (Wales)

I tried to give them individual personalities as I see them from their pictures. :)

Omg these look amazing! Finally! Because this what ive been searching for! True, legitamate cartoons of national personifications! I wish there was more like this. Instead, deviantart is stocked with stupid hetallia weeaboo bullshit that they think are the legit national icons of our nations. I say that is the circumsision of nationality! But this artwork defines originality! I love it!

I thought the Canadian personification was Johnny Canuck? Mother Canada looks good though!
I like this picture a lot. It kinda shows how each country sees/saw themselves.

Adelita is awesome, but I think a green skirt would be better, we don't use blue in our national simbols
