What is a traditional English musical instrument? I would have to say the piano. Steinway is one of the most famous and most sought after brands of pianos found in the U.K. Brass bands are very popular here in England too. If I had to name a traditional English brass instrument, I would probably go for the trombone.
What is the colour of a traditional English rose? The rose is the national flower of England and the emblem most associated with this country. It is traditionally worn on St George’s Day. There are many varieties of rose around. The most famous ones are the red rose of Lancashire and the white rose of Yorkshire, which go back to medieval times when the War of the Roses was fought. The Tudor rose is a traditional heraldic emblem of England and takes its origins from Henry Tudor who brought the War of the Roses to an end and joined the red and white roses together.
