    no patroism comes from the heart, look at all our fallen heros who died for their countries in battle,majority of them had no flag and they were true patriots.

    and they still arent waving a flag
    NO WAY. Patriotism is about a sight more than bunging a piece of coloured rag on a stick and waving it about like a galah in a gum tree.

    I have the Australian flag on a pole at the front of my home but I use it to honour other Australians. you know the ones in Afghanistan.
    The day one is killed the flag goes to half mast, the day of their funeral back here it goes to half mast.

    When that copper was shot at Surfers I flew the flag at half mast the day of his funeral.

    Every time I think about our support for the "forces of good" I can`t help but think of Laurel and Hardy and their famous saying. "This is another fine mess you got me into Laurel"

    Why are you bored cobber, go outside and freeze for a while and that will make you appreciate being in the warmth and hopefully stop the boredom.

    i fly the flag on Aussie day on the car, that the only time, i'm lying i fly it ANZAC Day as well.
    yep

    I have a small flag at home. I don't wave it.   But I love this country with my heart.  The waving of the flag is symbolic.

    No  I don't  have a flag  but  I feel  that I am  very much a patriot  . I think  patriotism comes from the heart and soul.

    Yes, you must wave your flag and wear a flag t-shirt and talk about patriotic things on a regular basis (at least 3 times a day).

    Now I'm gonna comment on my own answer. I'm sure you all realize I wasn't serious, but I am a very patriotic person. I don't run around waving a flag. I feel very bad for these young kids fighting for us. They need to bring them all home. If waving a flag would bring them home, I would be happy to walk around waving one all day long.

    Black3, that is being PATROTIC, well said.
