Template:National symbols
So, after all of this, what do you propose, guys? What should we add here. and how? --WhiteWriter speaks 19:59, 14 September 2010 (UTC)

I propose to delete the "People" section, as I think no person can be considered a "national symbol of Serbia". Vanjagenije (talk) 20:18, 14 September 2010 (UTC)

Sure, that is logic... Next? :) --WhiteWriter speaks 22:38, 14 September 2010 (UTC)

I have to agree with Vanjagenije. I really don't see how a person, no matter how historically significant, can be considered a national symbol... thats just weird. Also the "places" section really just belittles other less well known places in Serbia. Buttons (talk) 02:28, 17 September 2010 (UTC)

New proposition[edit]

Also, i created National symbols of Serbia, we should see what else to include there and in this template! :) --WhiteWriter speaks 12:21, 19 September 2010 (UTC)

I heard that St Sava is the patron saint of Serbian schools, but I never heard that he is the patron saint of Serbia. Is there some evidence for this? Vanjagenije 19:00, 19 September 2010 (UTC)
Vanja, i am searching also! Not good sources, but just on the information level...

And few more! :) --WhiteWriter speaks 17:06, 20 September 2010 (UTC)

Better version[edit]

Why is this version reverted?

  • Cultural icons: As in other articles
  • Monuments: World Heritage sites and Cathedral of Saint Sava
  • People: If being depicted on the currency, why wouldn't these persons be symbols of Serbia?

--Jebacz (talk) 03:21, 12 October 2010 (UTC)

I Agree -- WhiteWriter speaks 09:30, 12 October 2010 (UTC)
This version is reverted not because it's bad, but because we have to make a consensus first, before making such a radical change. Personally, I agree with monuments and persons, but I can hardly agree that cevapcici and pljeskavica are national symbols of Serbia, nor can I agree with wolves and eagles being national symbols.

Please see the National symbol article. --Jebacz (talk) 12:46, 13 October 2010 (UTC)
Guys, what the heck are you doing? Stop edit warring. Vanja, i don't agree with you. dishes and animals are national symbols. We may see more at the main article about this. Also, you may present new ideas about dishes, as i really think that this is ours most known ones. Please, explain your reasoning. --WhiteWriter speaks 14:21, 13 October 2010 (UTC)
