Young people value the country's history and believe the monarchy or Shakespeare represent "Britishness" more than current celebrities, a new report reveals.
Entries from thousands of youngsters to a My Britain competition showed a preference for history and heritage over popular culture.
One in three of those submitting entries to the internet search giant Google said the royal family was the key to their British identity.
A similar number picked out Big Ben, while over half used the Union flag to depict their interpretation of Britishness.
Only a handful of the 15,000 entries included drawings of Harry Potter or James Bond.
Tony Robinson, TV personality, historian and president of the Young Archaeologists' Club, said: "I was delighted at how varied, creative and culturally engaged the kids' responses were, with a vivid sense of our shared history.
"What a surge of national pride coursed through me when I saw the entry that depicted Britishness as a sausage, egg, bacon, beans and a knife and fork!"
Nikesh Arora, Google's vice president, European Operations, commented: "There has been a great deal of public debate over the last year about what it means to be British.
"At Google, we feel this unique and compelling report can play a constructive part in that discussion.
"Not only do the doodles demonstrate how talented British youngsters are, but our report shows the importance of tradition, heritage and history to the upcoming generation."
