When I walked into the studio this morning at 5:00 AM to begin our show, Kira and Logan in the Morning, Kira said to me, "how well do you know New England?"

I was very caught off guard; however, it got me thinking...how well DO I know New England? I feel like I have a lot of love and pride for New England.

During our morning show she actually quizzed me, giving me 10 phrases, sayings, and other questions all about New England. I fared well, and was happy about my performance.

It did lead me to think about New Hampshire specifically.

With my roots planted in Portsmouth, NH, attending undergrad and grad school in New Hampshire, and my frequent summer trips to the White Mountains, I like to think I bleed the 603.

Do you?

We all know the state motto: "Live free or die." Darn right!

Most of us New Hampshire folk could point out our state flag: the blue flag with the Continental frigate Raleigh in the middle, all surrounded by gold leaves and stars.

I would bet that anyone from New Hampshire over the age of 20 could describe what "The Man on the Mountain" is, where it once rested, and how symbolic it was.

But what about the state mineral? Do you know that?

No, Granite Staters, it is not Granite. In fact, it is Beryl according to a State Symbols USA article.

What about the state dog, bird, tree, fruit, and vegetable? Think you know those?

I was pretty impressed that I was able to guess a few correct. I was also shocked to learn some of the symbols that I had no clue of. I did not even know New Hampshire, and all states, identify certain symbols like a state amphibian or state insect.

Check out what New Hampshire's state symbols are. See how well you do and how well you know the 603.
