The paper focuses on Billig's notion of banal nationalism. The AA. suggest that this work tends to reinforce an unwarranted separation of the banal and hot processes that reproduce nationalism. One way in which such an agenda can be furthered is through a promotion of the idea of everyday nationalism, which combines banal and hot elements in more complex and contingent ways. Such an approach is adopted through an empirical discussion of the campaign in favour of bilingual road signs in Wales between 1967 and 1975
