Abstract

La Diada 2012 – the national day of Catalonia was a day when around 1.000.000 protesters walked the streets of Barcelona waiving the Catalan flag, shouting phrases with one clear message, independence. A complexity between banal and hot nationalism was demonstrated this day. However, through the banal symbols present at La Diada 2012, Catalonia showed it is not Spain, and through this a hot movement arose to fight to find an escape from Spain. Previous years La Diada may have been hot but 2012 was the year when banal catalanism once again became “hot” Catalan Nationalism. (Less)
