The BBC is exploring the notion of "Who do we think we are?" and we asked to see selfies of you with something or someone with whom you identify.

A survey for the BBC's Who Do We Think We Are? project, showed that many people in the UK feel a growing connection with others in their neighbourhood and the wider world, but shrinking ties with their own country.

Many BBC journalists posted their own selfies but you have also been getting involved. Here are some of yours:

Left: Steve Pickering: "Me on my way to Flamborough head on my paraglider, with South Landing behind me."

Right: Charice Gray: "Me and my giant Clydesdale horse, Commander."

Left: Wales Air Ambulance: "Our mascot Huw HEMS has been getting involved in ‪‎selfie day‬."

Right: Yorkshire Air Ambulance: "Lance not one to miss out on ‪selfie day‬! Poser."

The BBC's weather team got involved.

Even the BBC News Channel's Nicholas Owen and Sophie Long got into the spirit.
