^ I edited it But I was trying to point that we are not owner of any country to proud about a country’s achievement.
You have a point, but I think the OP meant “thankful”. Related to this, I wonder how many people know where the Ubuntu Linux disto got its name: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ubuntu_%28philosophy%29
(Ubuntu: “I am what I am because of who we all are.”)
As for me, what Ruben said above
The cheapest form of pride however is national pride. For it reveals in the one thus afflicted the lack of individual qualities of which he could be proud, while he would not otherwise reach for what he shares with so many millions. He who possesses significant personal merits will rather recognise the defects of his own nation, as he has them constantly before his eyes, most clearly. But that poor blighter who has nothing in the world of which he can be proud, latches onto the last means of being proud, the nation to which he belongs to. Thus he recovers and is now in gratitude ready to defend with hands and feet all errors and follies which are its own.

You just had to post that, didn’t you?
I totally disagree with it. I am pride with my country, but that doesn’t mean that i am not proud with my achievements or qualities, or that i don’t have any..
