Now then, if you could pick one thing which sums England up to you, what would it be?

We've been asked to vote for the objects that most represent Englishness to help create an online portrait of English icons2. The first 12 have been announced, so we are gonna have a look at some of the highlights here.

As a backdrop to the portrait, the song that's become the anthem3 of last year's Ashes victory (2005 Ashes Cricket Series), Jerusalem.

Can't stop conducting, can you, right? The largest icon1 on the list, though, is what's thought to be England's oldest monument, and that is Stonehenge as you see there.

Also on the list, a modern monolith, Anthony Gormley's Tyneside artwork, The Angel Of The North.

Next, is the icon of wartime England, engineering prowess, and courageous4 pilots in the Spitfire.

London's famous Routemaster double decker bus also made the first 12 despite the fact they were taken out of service earlier this year.

Now next, we have something that completes every English fete or seaside resort. That is the Punch-and-Judy show, or something like that.

Er, this defining portrait, the one down there, of ur~ Henry VIII is also included despite the fact that the artist Horlbein was born in Germany.

And sport is represented in the form of England's most famous football competition, the FA Cup, which you'll be hearing more about today.

And from one cup to another, a proper English cupper. Well that's on the list so far, but I wonder what you'll think it something we are definitely putting on our weblog too~ur Here for a JT's considering issue returns to work tomorrow. What've you got your nominations5? What is quintessentially English as far as you are concerned? News@Sky.com is~ur the place to send your emails or go to the weblog and contribute there by going to sky.com/news, and on the front page of that you'll find the weblog button, and once you've done that, you can get through to JT as you see photographed artwork in Jerusalem last week.
