National Identity versus Human Identity

What are the differing claims of one's 'national identity" and one's 'human identity'? Is there a basic difference between Europeans, Americans, or British , for example, and being a human? If so what is that difference? Can there be a compatibility between one's national identity and one's generic human identity? Where does one start and the other end? Do different national identities express 'humanness' differently? For example ,one analyst put it this way:The idea is that people make use of different styles to express their humanity. The styles are generally determined by the communities to which they belong. There are people who express themselves ‘Frenchly’, while others have forms of life that are expressed ‘Koreanly’ or … ‘Icelandicly’
