MOSCOW (Sputnik) - The French take less pride in being Europeans than Italians and Germans but outstrip Germans when it comes to being proud of their own nationality, a poll conducted by the French Institute of Public Opinionan (IFOP) shows.
Seventy-eight percent of Germans sampled said they took pride in the sense of belonging to Europe, followed by 75% of Italians and 68% of the French.
When asked whether they were proud of belonging to their respective nations, 87% of the French said they were, compared to 89% in Italy and 77% in Germany.
The survey was conducted for Le Journal du Dimanche and EuropaNova among more than 3,000 adults in the three core EU countries from December 14-20.
