Traditionally flags are used to represent one culture like the Irish they’re flag represents the unity between Catholics and protestants with the green, white and orange. Or how the German flag of black, red, and yellow. A flag can also represent a group of people like the pan Arab flag with red, white, black. Many symbols beyond flags are used to represent their, and Americans wear their culture proudly their families come from many places. 

A special example of someone flaunting their culture and pushing it on everyone else is David Coyle. This man will explain in essay format about how amazing it is to be of Irish and Polish descent.

Along with David, my fried, Logan Tomaszewski, will go on about how awesome his grandfather was in the French Resistance in WWII.

Sure, I like my Scandinavian, Anglo, and Irish culture. But the one I’m proud of is my German heritage from the 12th Century

Be proud of your heritage, and let it shine even if people might not like it.
