Heritage and Home
National identity is a construction of images. They are connected to the nation and help its members create an identity. Images can include various types of communication, including pictures, symbols, metaphors, or stereotypes. However, they do not show the actual reality of society, but only a representation of it. National identity is therefore a construct. Which symbols are imprinted in your memory depends on your own experiences. Your origins, your social, cultural, political and economic conditions, play an important role.
