What is patriotism?

Patriotism is emotional and voluntary. The patriot adheres to
certain patriotic values, such as respect for a flag.

Governments promote an official patriotism which has a high
symbolic and ceremonial content. It is a logical consequence of the
state itself, which derives legitimacy from being the expression of
the common good of the political community. National monuments,
and veterans days and commemoration ceremonies are typical
examples. Often official patriotism is highly regulated by protocol,
with specific methods for handling flags, or specific pledges and
displays of allegiance.

Patriotism relies heavily on symbolic acts, such as displaying the
flag, singing the national anthem, participating in a mass rally,
placing a patriotic bumper sticker on one's vehicle, or any other
way of publicly proclaiming allegiance to the state. Symbolic
patriotism in wartime is intended to raise morale, in turn
contributing to the war effort. Peacetime patriotism can not be so
easily linked to a measurable gain for the state, but the patriot does
not see it as inferior.

Some critics have maintained that (unlike modern nationalism,
which is a creation of the 19th-century nation state) authentic
patriotism (as the Latin 'pater' would suggest) must be based in
some form of  hemophilia and  the sharing of ancestors.

Levels of patriotism vary across time, and among political
communities. Typically, patriotic intensity is higher when the state
is under external threat.

Conversely, high levels of patriotism tends to be coupled with
belligerency according to the Correlates of War. As examples,
patriotism was highly rated by Correlates of War in pre-WWI
Germany, as is the US today in World Values Survey
