A website should have its own identity. It should not only look distinct but also be identifiable with its main purpose, activity, location, etc.
|Tiger: Indian national animal|
If you have a blog or website on nature photography, travel, Indian flora and fauna, etc, you can display tiger and peacock. Both make powerful visual elements. While tiger is majestic and forceful, peacock beats all animals with its fan of colourful feathers.
Travel, culture and nature sites can also display the Himalayas and the Taj. Culture, history and travel websites can use photos of Rajasthani folk dance, a classical dance, dancing Shiva, Ganesha, yoga, lotus and other cultural icons of India.

Avoid visuals showing poverty, icons of a particular religion, people – especially the poor, handicapped and socially backward - in bad light, superstitions, crime and filth. India has a good share of these all, but displaying them serves hardly any good purpose while it amplifies India’s negatives at the cost of its strong cultural and social traditions.
This post is addressed specifically to Indian bloggers, but those from other nations can think of similar actions on their websites, blogs and other social media.
