Patriotism was the love for one's planet or government. A person exhibiting patriotism was called a patriot. Porter, a member of a late 20th century American anti-government militia, conflated it with a drive toward individualism as opposed to collectivity. (VOY: "Future's End")

Patriotism was a concept found in many cultures, and pervasive in some. However, Jean-Luc Picard once labeled it as "nonsense centuries behind us". (TNG: "Encounter at Farpoint")

In 2268, an announcer described the ceremony in which Daras was awarded the Iron Cross as a patriotic demonstration. (TOS: "Patterns of Force")

Later that year, James T. Kirk questioned whether a war had been staged for the crews of USS Enterprise and a Klingon vessel, complete with, among other things, "patriotic drum beating". (TOS: "Day of the Dove")
