A small point, but in the NAL the eagle has specific political connotations in that it is the mascot of the Progressive Conservative Party. This would be akin to a US coin with a donkey or elephant on it. Zahir 10:50, 3 September 2007 (PDT)

I don't see any particular conflict -- eagles are common enough symbols in the US for groups other than the US itself. I'm not sure what the NAL's national bird is (it could well be the turkey!), but eagles are certainly majestic and symbolic of bravery and all that. If the P-C adopted the eagle as their bird, it's probably because they were already seen as symbolically American birds. Me I think the two factoids mesh together pretty well. If you think there would be a problem, then perhaps we should discuss that in Conculture? Elemtilas 12:01, 3 September 2007 (PDT)
