And…North Korea strikes again! Did you know that their national animal is fictional? It is called Chollima – a mythical winged horse which originates from the Chinese mythology and is common for many Asian cultures. But, the strange thing is that North Koreans claim that this is a real animal and use it for political propaganda.
If I have to be honest, North Korea is not the only country to do this, many countries have mythological creatures as their emblems – China, Wales, etc. But none of these countries pretend that these creatures actually exist.
