Fewer Czechs are proud of their citizenship

Four in ten Czechs are proud of their citizenship, according to a recent survey by the Public Opinion Research Center (CVVM). The survey also revealed that 14 percent are ashamed of being Czech and 42 percent are ambivalent. National pride among Czechs has been steadily decreasing. In October 2011, 47 percent were proud of their Czech citizenship, while nine percent were ashamed of it. Around two-thirds of the respondents said if given a choice of any country of residence they would live in the Czech Republic. Two years ago, some 70 percent gave the same answer.
