The article characterizes the currently ongoing discussion in the Federal Republic of Germany on the shape of the so-called German patriotism. This syncretic and still rather vague conception, which has gained popularity in recent years, is yet another attempt to define German identity - after the ultra nationalistic, followed by the 'European' and finally the one summed up in the formula of 'constitutional patriotism'. Its emergence should be connected with the project of transforming Germany into a 'normal' state and nation.
