It is a very central element in American culture and therefore, some of the first meanings that this animal reveals to us is its relationship with patriotism or with issues in relation to the military for example. Not only that, but it has also been associated in American society as a symbol of freedom (probably associated with the image of an eagle flying between the mountains, following its path without any obstacle), we will return to this issue later.

Unlike other designs, the design of an eagle rarely appears accompanied by other elements (sometimes it can be accompanied by the American flag) and it is that the meaning it has is so powerful that it is not necessary to reinforce it with other elements as it can happen With other types of designs.
