Abstract: Patriotism is not completely dissimilar to nationalism, it is a type of nationalism. One could say that patriotism is a type of cold or banal nationalism. In Germany, in places and on occasions one would expect banal symbols of the nation, they are absent, or deliberately played down. Nonetheless, the nation is presented using the best available evidence, i.e. the things of which the nation is most proud. Although the symbolism is not apparent in them, they provide banal support for national pride and they have the potential to become national symbols in circumstances of hot nationalism. In this paper an ecologically friendly neighbourhood in Germany is discussed as an example of these types of dormant symbols.
Níl an tírghrá go hiomlán difriúil leis an náisiúnachas, is cineál náisiúnachais é. D’fhéadfá a rá gur cineál náisiúnachas fuar nó leamh ('banal') é an tírghrá. Sa Ghearmáin, in áiteanna agus ar ócáidí a mbeifí ag súil le siombailí an náisiúin a bheith ann go leamh, níl siad ann ar chor ar bith, nó tá siad íoslaghdaithe d’aon turas. Ach fós cuirtear náisiúin i láthair leis an bhfhianaise is fearr dá bhfuil ar fail .i. na rudaí a mó a mbíonn bród ar an náisiún astu. Cé nach bhfuil an siombalachas soiléir iontu seo tugann na rudaí sin tacaíocht leamh don bhród náisiúnta agus tá an cumas iontu a bheith ina siombailí náisiúnta sa chás go dtiocfadh an náisiúnachas te i gceist. Sa pháipéar seo pléitear ceantar éiceolaíoch sa Ghearmáin mar shampla de na cineálacha siombailí folaigh seo.
