If we talk about culture we also have to talk about patriotism. In the discussion we had about it, we came to the conclusion that in most cases German point of view is different to other nations.
For us It is not easy to say we are proud about our nation because we have to handle many historical issues with it.
But as you know, if it comes to soccer we suddenly can say that we are proud. If we talk about our welfare systems or our fundamental law/ constitution, yes we can be proud about it. We need to see national pride from diverse perspectives and need to learn from faults.
