Jingoism is the potrayal of being a true patriot of one country on the one hand whilst favouring foreign nationalism on the other.

 

Jingoists are rife in countries that emerge from the throngs of colonialism. More often than not the indigenous inhabitants are acculturated to embrace the nationalism of the colonisers.

 

Example -certain sector of  English-speaking South Africans claim to be patriotic to South Africa but pay allegiance to British national symbols such as the “Union-jack”,  “God save the Queen” etc
