patrotism and nationalism

So, my first question is: But can a dissident (someone who expresses their disagreement with their own country) be considered patriotic?

So, second question: is this a valid argument to make to stand for the flag/anthem? Should respect for one's country overrule the opportunity to express disagreements in moments like this (i.e., there is a time and place for everything, but not then and there)?
