English Icons

The British Culture Minister Sunday announced an effort to identify the "Icons of England" from across the centuries.

As a mere colonist, I'm not sure if I'm eligible to nominate or vote, but these would be a few of my iconic English icons as viewed from across the pond:

That Union Jack-et that Pete Townshend used to wear back in the '60s;

The car that Patrick McGoohan drove in the opening credit scenes of "The Prisoner";

Becks' white football boots;

Sir Bedevere's helmet in Monty Python & The Holy Grail;

Jean Shrimpton's bangs;

The Queen's Corgis;

The Gallagher brothers' eyebrows.
