Belize is a country on the eastern coast of Central America; it is the only country in the area where English is the official language (although Kriol and Spanish are more commonly spoken). It gained independance from the United Kingdom in 1981.
The symbols are as follows: national bird is Keel Billed Toucan, national flower is Black Orchid, the national animal Baird's Tapir (endangered and protected by law) and the national tree the Mahogany Tree - the latter was heavily exploited by British settlers in past centuries. It is now featured on the national emblem/coat of arms.
Many thanks to Carrie! Brilliant colours :))
