Gallic Rooster - 9 Oddest National Animals And Birds Of In The World

The Gallic Rooster is the unofficial national symbol of France. It came from a Latin case of homonyms. Oddly enough, the rooster couldn’t have been identified as a national personification during that time. Because France didn’t exist as a nation with different Gaulish tribes ruling over separate regions of ancient France. And Celtic mythology also didn’t have any direct analogy to roosters in relation to super entities. In any case, the Gallic Rooster had it’s resurgence as an odd but identifying national symbol during the French Revolution. Since then the ‘Chanteclair‘ had held its own in the realm of French consciousness, including being depicted in coins, sporting events and even war memorials. Source
