Were you born and raised here in Louisiana? I was and after finding out all these official state symbols of Louisiana, I feel like I am not that great of a Louisianian.

I mean when I looked over this list, I knew a bunch of them but when I saw some of the others on the list, I said Hmm really? I mean I am a Soileau which screams Cajun but some of these things on the list below are things I didn't know we had a state symbol for all these.

Let me test your knowledge/ If I asked you what the state fruit was, would you know? I took a stable at it and said figs but I was wrong. It is the Strawberry.  Did you know that? Here is another one for you. Do you know what the official state of Louisiana Fossil is? See what I am saying?
