Identity and Object.

How do these symbols or historical objects obtain their identities? Is it the objects that give the identity to the people or is it the people that give the objects an identity? Various examples of nations and their national symbols will be used to illustrate the significance of national symbols and explore the relationship between the identity of these historical objects and the people.

Symbols are used to serve as an identity of people from a given nation. For example during the world cup, soccer teams from various nations identify themselves using their flags. The players also wear sportswear that has the national color of their flags which makes it possible to know which player represents a given country. During the medal ceremony the flags of these countries are also flown by the players to identify the nations they are from and also as a way to honor their countries. Flags hoisted represent winning countries in the worldcup which reinforces pride in one’s national identity.
