England

Even though it's England and not Great Britain, I chose Union Jack's colours, since they are more recognised. The hairstyle is wild and red, since he is a punk. I have a few versions with different heads that you can see in the link below.

Canada

Canada is simple guy with puppy eyes. He is kind and not conflicting. Prefers to be at home and not look for any problems in others' battles. He only fights in sports- hockey. He finds it honest and cheerful. Because of his success in hockey, he's called "The King of ice". Sometimes a crown appears over his head and he often dreams about future victories.
