Great statement, expect nothing less. But have you got proof of this or is that just of the top of your head?

Well, since the original question was "What moments have made you proud to be where you're from", I will have to go with events that I have personally witnessed, rather than historical events that happened before I was born, or that I don't remember. I'm a dual UK/US citizen.

1981 - Royal Wedding
2001 - Post 9/11
2008 - Obama being elected

And on a personal note, I was very proud and humbled when I became a US Citizen in 2008.

It makes absolutely no sense to be proud of one's country.

That was a really good post so thank you for sharing it with us but about the above, it is a matter of opinion what you get pride from. I love sport so much that when my country does something great in the sport, I feel really proud, the same way I feel proud on other more serious issues.

That is what I originaly ment when I created the thread but people can post what they want and if these moments make them proud well then so be it and to be fair, moments in history can be relived in movies and songs.
