National Identity:
What makes us British?
A sense of shared national culture
Agencies of socialisation promote shared national culture.
Sporting Events
Large, televised sporting events cause patriotic unity amongst people within a nation. The media promotes this sense of unity through merchandise, publicity and accessability.
National Days of significance
Annual days of national significance that unify people through nostalgia, patriotism, but also through consumerism. All agencies of socialisation are involved in promoting such days.
Heritage and Tradition
National figures, artifacts of historical significance and traditional pastimes. The media, family and education instil traditional and cultural importance.

Most modern nations are culturally diverse.
Other cultures feel excluded
