Sub-national pride.
Victorians and New South Welshmen constantly bitch about one-another. It's statriotism at its finest.

South Australians really hate Victorians. They're SOOO statriotic!

Western Australians call the rest of the country 'The Eastern States'. If that's not statriotism, I don't know what is!

Showing great pride for the city or state one lives in, or at least constantly mentions it. And yes, much more than showing appreciation for the whole USA. The prime example for a city would be San Francisco, and the prime example for a state would be Rhode Island.
Today i saw a bunch of 16-year old white guys with saggin pants and backwards Giants (baseball) hats walking down the street shouting "SF is da hella legit shit, homiez!". They're very statriotic, but is that really a good reason to wave infinitely more rainbow flags than American flags?
