I am from Norway:
I am proud that my country did not invade Tibet, and that Norway has not terrorized the Tibetan population for the last 50 years. :smile:

I am from the US and I am proud of the US. Frankly, I can't see why physical features of the land would be something to be proud of, though: Americans didn't build the Grand Canyon.

I'm proud Canada is NOT a nuclear power, despite having the ability to be one should we so desire.

And France gave us the metric system :!!)

I'm American.

Things I'm proud of:

- The legacy of the founding fathers (political, not personal, legacy).
- The great history of commerce and capitalism, hard-work and innovation.
- Henry James, John Steinbeck, Ernest Hemingway, and many other great 20th century writers.
- The modern motion picture. Hollywood hasn't been too hot lately, but still, I'm a great lover of film, and it wouldn't have gotten far if not for the contribution from my native city.
- The interstate highway system (except the I-40 in Arkansas).
- Silicon Valley, even though it crashed.
- The city of New York. A marvel to behold like no other place I've been.
- The Blue Ridge Mountains. I know we didn't build them, but they are the most gorgeous mountains I will ever see and the place that many of my ancestors were originally descended from. Another marvel to behold.
- Almost everything about California, except that whole stretch between Bakersfield and Sacramento.
- The Los Angeles Lakers, Los Angeles Dodgers, USC Trojans, Philadelphia Flyers, and Philadelphia Eagles (don't ask me why I root for Philly teams, I just do).

Things I'm not proud of:

- Andrew Jackson
- Mormonism
- Overconsumption of natural resources
- The refusal to go metric
- The fact that Los Angeles has never produced a great novelist (I guess anyone with talent gets sucked into screenwriting).
- The Trail of Tears

I'm proud to be born in the United States of America. Because I was born into freedom. While I don't agree with the politics, I am free to read, write or publish anything I wish about my country. If I work hard enough, I can be anything I choose.

I'm going to assume you know that the poster is from the Netherlands, in which case, what do you mean exactly?

Well, Norwegians are stuck up with their own nationalism that we are somehow the nicest guys around, rushing about the world to negotiate in conflicts we don't know a thing about and awarding various peace prizes to this and that person WE feel deserves it.

It's rather cloying, actually...

My old neighbors were of Norwegian descent. Pasty-looking, reclusive Mormons. Aside from them, I had never even heard of a Norwegian until you. Swedes, well they've got hot chicks. Finland had Lasse Viren. I just figured Norway was the name of a glacier.







































































Okay, I'm kidding. Actually, the Heimskringla is pretty cool. But that really is about all I know of Norway.

1.From what I've heard, the Norwegian chicks are much hotter than the Swedish, but not as hot as the Icelandish ones.

2. You might have heard about Henrik Ibsen as well.
Kind of fashionable playwright in his time.

Cheers! Me too, another Malaysian proud of his own country ~
 
Don't mock to any one! I have no bad meanings. Only I want to hear how is the thinking of their loyalty to their contry~! And I am interested to know some contries' culture! Is there any practical reasons? I think every nation will have.
