I am just wondering, what's your countrie's National Animal and plant.

I don't know the Swiss animal, but I think the plant is the 'Edelweiss'.
Ireland has the Shamrock, don't know the animal, probably a Bull.
Zambia has the Fish Eagle and Uganda has the Southern Crowned Crane.
I need more...

Germany: eagle (the brown stone eagle) and oak tree.

And just like the US, each federal state has its own animal and plant, often heraldically derived from the old German kingdoms.
