Patriotic tattoos: Loyalty, fidelity and nationalism

Objectively, it is a rectangular piece of cloth with more or less color. On the subjective side, it is much more than that: an icon, a symbol. A flag can have a lot of meaning for someone, tear out their feelings at what times or a passionate defense if they feel attacked.

To show how far patriotism goes, there are those who decide to tattoo a flag that links a country for all eternity. It would look, for example, on a smooth chest, always waving like the best shot in a movie.

Due to its color it is one of the options that gives the most play, in addition to its metahistory. Each one has its own. Did you know, for example, that the Dannenbrog is the oldest in the world? For almost 800 years it has been the highest insignia of Denmark. Or that not all the flags of the world are rectangular? In fact, the vast majority do have it and three remain out of the group: those of Nepal (made up of two rectangular symbols superimposed, one on top of the other), Switzerland and Vatican City.

Colors are also something to consider since, in some cases, if they are not accompanied by a symbol they can belong to up to three different countries. This is the case of Venezuela, Colombia and Ecuador, which not only opted for a yellow, a blue and a red stripe for their flag, but also placed them horizontally in the same position.

Not only flags can print patriotic feelings on the skin. What can you do with the emotional hymns? Its lyrics can have an unimaginable meaning for someone who is not part of a certain country, but you can ask yourself so much as to tattoo it? Listen to it in the final of a World Cup or when you have been away from home for years and tell me later.

And not just flags or hymns. A scene from its history, one of its heroes or heroines, a representative animal … The imagination finds no limits. What can be painted on the skin, either.
