Patriotism and a little bit of football in 🇩🇪⠀
I’m not going to dig deep into the topic of German patriotism as I can get too political 😂 But I still want to give you a glimpse into how it looks like here. Growing up in Russia, I used to think that it’s normal to love your country, to be in a way proud of it. But Germans have a whole different attitude towards national identity!
On the one hand, you can understand them: for many centuries there was no “united” Germany, but only several separate kingdoms. And the real power Germany gained during the rule of...Hitler. It was the time when national identity idea was flourishing in Germany. So it’s quite understandable that they don’t want to be linked to that anymore.
But now we are in the 21st century and I find it sometimes a pity that some Germans still feel uncomfortable with waving the national flag or with proudly saying “I’m German” whereas they have things they can be really proud of! A lot of people would identify themselves even more likely with being European than being German. A friend of mine does not tell people while abroad that she actually comes from Germany. She believes people would treat her differently.
Although nowadays you see more people hanging the 🇩🇪 flags on their cars, houses, heads 😅 especially now during the football time ⚽️, there are still those who find it unnecessary and who think that it’s better to be restrained with your patriotic feelings to avoid them being exploited in a bad way.
What’s your opinion on it? If there are any Germans reading this post, do you agree or not?

Republicans need to stop caving on immigration rules and other issues. We see what’s happening in Europe with their immigration crisis and we can’t look the other way. We must, as a country, stand strong and do what is right for our citizens and punish those who break the law. Republicans and Democrats are failing us.
