Often I get the two confused and wonder if you do too.
Perhaps you can shed some example here.
Patriotism is a love of your country. (While accepting that other people love their country and culture too.)
Nationalism is to be avoided. Think how the word Nazi came about.
It refers to believing in one country or political power being more important or superior to another. This also includes the belief that your culture is better than another and other cultures should be eradicated as inferior.
That is nationalism at its extreme and you just have to look at history over the centuries to see that.
A patriot stands for the national anthem to show respect.
A nationalist stands for the national anthem so he can spit on anyone who sits.
Well, nationalism is actually an ideology--bigger than definitions given yet:
I think patriotism only apply in war ,in peace it is rarely nationalism happen when product from abroad is more likely appealing then domestic product
Patriotism has some boundaries. It is sincerity towards one's own country and its government. It is one's commitment to uphold the sovereignty of a country.
Nationalism has no boundaries. It is one's imaginary land where one particular ethnic/ religious groups intends to establish a nation.
It is patriotism if an Indian restricts his ideals applicable to a land from Kashmir to Kanyakumari, from Arunachal Pradesh to Gujarat. But if one wishes to establish a larger India from Kandahar to Kamarup and from Kashmir to Kanyakumari and far-east, it is nationalism., ie., to include the lands where ancient India's borders stretched at different times.
