When it come to Patriotism , i kinda agree with this quote :

Pablo Casals: The love of one's country is a splendid thing. But why should love stop at the border?

You do not have to be in the military. It is your passion, and your intentions that also determine your love and patriotism for your country.
Serving it, and making it a better place could be also patriotism and you do not necessarily have to join the military.

Look at it this way:
The military is the arm, and the hard working civilians are the hands and fingers. Without one another, you wont be able to grab victory.

Because over the border, it is someone else's country . Let them love it if they wish, one's own country needs all your love.

Like charity, it starts at home, and in my opinion should end there. The word Patriot comes from the Latin Patria: one's own country, lit. Father country or Fatherland.

The above not withstanding, Yeah, I do know what you mean though.

I think the quote i used is trying to say that to have love for your own country is a great thing but people should have tolerance and respect for other nations . I do relise this is very naive comment because different nations will naturally have disagreements which could lead to hatred and possibly war but i still think its a noble thought to have...

It seems to me that those with the most patriotic respect for their flag are likely to understand respect the same fervour in other nations. It always concerns me when other countries' anthems are boo-d at sporting occasions. No-one supports their national team more than me, but I deplore that practice. It is completely unacceptable, and I always feel like apologising for the morons.

A disgusting display of bad manners, usually backed up by equally bad sportsmanship.

Back on topic - here's my bit for England and friends :-


Always in majesty , glorious in duty;
Honour intensity, gracious in beauty.
Hour by hour, decade by decade;
Gentle in power, correct on parade.
Great royal marathon, reign of all reigns;
Challenges parried, composure remains.
Time has not bowed or burdened down
The brow that bears the royal Crown.

Here is the Queen who was born to the throne
Raised up in blitz-kreig, tempered as steel.
Here is the maiden who makes England England;
Hers is the banner of sovereignty’s seal.
There will never be another
Her like will not be seen again
The flame may die with England’s mother
Lowered by unready men.


So raise your glass to Queen Elizabeth
Come raise your hat and raise a cheer
That we have known such royal presence
Among us, striving, serving, here.


GOD SAVE OUR QUEEN.


Patriotic enough, guys?? Del Boy.

I'd have to say the most rabidly patriotic people in the world are the Chinese.
