American pride is something unique to Americans. Over the past two decades up until Trump’s presidency, 81%-92% said they were extremely proud of their American identity, the Gallup data showed. Only this year, the numbers of extremely proud Americans dropped to a record low of 45%.
On the other hand, this alone shouldn’t be reason enough to forget such a seemingly basic fact as what your country’s flag actually looks like. But for some people, a few stars here and there don’t make that big of a difference, until someone points out this is the Liberian flag, or the Chilean flag, or the Malaysian flag.
The cursed emoji everyone has been throwing around may look like the spitting image of an American flag, but hey, guys, why don’t we all get our stars, stripes, and proportions right? In the meantime, I can’t deny there’s an element of hilarity to all this. And a big one.
Too often, Americans seem to mix these two flags together:

The American flag is the quintessential element of American pride that has been embedded in the nation’s DNA since the country’s early years. But these past years, the US has been undergoing extreme political and social challenges that have been making its citizens rethink American pride and its values.
The percentage of Americans expressing extreme pride in the country has been declining over the past 20 years, but recently it took a more extreme turn. The latest Gallup data gathered from a May 28-June 4 poll found that less than a quarter of Americans, 20%, are satisfied with the way things are going in the US. Meanwhile, presidential approval fell to 39%.

But Gallup also notes that extreme pride is down among all major subgroups since 2016. In particular, Democratic-leaning groups that include young adults aged 18-29, women, college graduates, and non-whites have been increasingly less likely to express extreme pride over the years.
Interestingly, the Gallup findings showed that Republicans’ national pride marks the largest decline in extreme pride, with a 9% decrease spotted in 2020.
