    How can I say..?

    Hello,

    I'm not sure if I ask some questions correctly.

    Is this the correct way to ask:

    "What country a daffodil is the symbol of?
    A daffodil is the symbol of Wales."

    Thank you.)

    * Not a teacher

    I would say:

    Which country has a/the daffodil as a symbol?
    Which country's symbol is a daffodil?

    "Of which country is the daffodil the symbol?" or "The daffodil is the symbol of which country?" or "Which country is the daffodil the symbol of?"

    I'd use 'national flower' or 'emblem' rather than 'symbol'.
