The White Cliffs of Dover

The White Cliffs of Dover stand guard over England's southeast coast, facing towards France, and the European continent.  The cliffs stand close to 350 feet tall and have symbolically guarded England from invasion from the continent for centuries.  The cliffs get their bright white color from their composition of calcium carbonate - chalk - and can easily be seen from 30,000 feet up in the air!
