It seems cities like las vegas and phoenix have practically NO pride. most people in those cities couldnt name any famous historic events of the city and didnt even know what their own city flag looked like

I suppose Las Vegas would have very little. It's a fabricated town, really, and the majority of people there any given day will be gone by the end of the week, if not sooner. Actual Las Vegas and places like Henderson? Eh...

I feel like Chicago has far more than I would have expected from a city with so many issues and stereotypes.

Most people here openly talk about and admit to all the shortcomings and issues, but then at the same time they're extremely proud and stand up for Chicago.

I believe Denver has a lot of civic pride. IMO it has become a true "major" city in the last 20+ years.

Most pride? Off the top of my head, probably San Francisco and Chicago for the most pride (Chicago annoyingly so).

Least pride? Maybe Phoenix or Las Vegas, or any fast-growing city with transplants.

New Orleans has to have the proudest citizens of any city in the country.

Most: agree with other posters about Chicago
least: Detroit, no one there cares, litter and abandoned buildings everywhere.

If a city has a ton of transplants it probably has no civic pride.
If a city is real old school and has alot of natives there and few transplants, civic pride out the wazoo.
