Jingoism is nationalism in the form of aggressive and proactive foreign policy, such as a country's advocacy for the use of threats or actual force, as opposed to peaceful relations, in efforts to safeguard what it perceives as its national interests. Colloquially, jingoism is excessive bias in judging one's own country as superior to others – an extreme type of nationalism.

- We don't want to fight but, by Jingo, if we do,
We've got the ships, we've got the men, we've got the money too
We've fought the Bear before and while we're Britons true
The Russians shall not have Constantinople.
- G. W. Hunt, Macdermott's War Song (1878), quoted by Richard Anthony Baker, British Music Hall: An Illustrated History (2014), p. 22.
