Countries With the Best National Anthems
The Contenders: Page 2XW
It has the most dramatic and patriotic feeling you could ever hope to achieve. One of the best anthems of all time. It shows the pain and sacrifice of the ancestors and the ideals that are worth fighting for. "Life in freedom or death! "shout all.
The Romanian anthem is one of the best anthems of all, maybe the best. Very inspiring, music and lyrics also will fill you good emotions.
Very heartwarming piece indeed. I am not Romanian that I am aware of but this anthem is one that I connect with. It is emotionally stirring. It is filled with passion, glory, beauty, sadness and strength. It makes me want to get to know this nation better. I too believe this is the best anthem of any nation.
I like how it soundsV27 Comments
I think this is the most meaningful anthem
Vote for Turkey because the anthem isn't about glory of occupying somewhere, instead, it is all about the independence war against very powerful allied forces.
Independence March, it is about struggle to achieve our independence. Being occupied by powerful armies and their understanding of civilization but always have hope and faith in our hearts.
The most emotional anthemV35 Comments
I was born and raised in Israel. The national anthem is just beautiful and peaceful, it's shows how hard the people of Israel worked for independence!
The lyrics really represent so much emotion and pride, gotta be on the top
Although I am not Israeli and not even Jewish, this will always be my favourite anthem. So much emotion, such a powerful tune.
This song is one of the best this song should be in top 5V19 Comments
Joke, a national anthem should be about a country and not a person I. E queen
To me is the best it is funny and makes me cry all the time I hear it this should be at the top.
The climax at the end is so uplifting and it is a song for the people, poets and warriors of the land uniting them to protect their language, unlike the English one which is all about serving your monarch and being reigned over.
Search through you tube. Find a better performance than Wales rugby team singing before match against England 2013. You cannot beat the pride, intensity, passion and performance. AWESOME.
A great tempo with amazing lyrics. Translate them to your native younger to see the passion behind this tiny nations anthem. Combine this with Wales being the land of song and you have your true number 1!
Best national anthem on the go!V27 Comments
As an Australian I can proudly say that our national anthem is pathetic and that it is often embarrassing to see people sing it so poorly
It doesn't help that most people don't bother to learn the words
I am sorry but the national anthem is the opposite of what we are doing. It says we welcome people from other lands and we are rich and fair blah blah... we call refugees illegal refugees as if there is a legal refugee its pethetic... I can go on but a national anthem should be about the real values that ARE valued not just sang and left on the shelf!
I love the Australian national anthem! It is Advance Australia Fair.
We're not just advancing Australia, but we advance together, this Anthem says so much about unity and its about our multiculturalism and how diverse our country is!V15 Comments
I don't think you understood the question correctly
Denmark is the oldest kingdom in europe with the oldest flag as well.
Needless to say anyone born a viking is the luckiest and lets not forget the happiest people in the World
Kingdom Of Denmark has the best national anthem as well as the peace there in Denmark is no war that I like so much If all countries are like this then there is no war in the Earth. So no war only Peace
Denmark's national anthem isn't about war, power or leaders, unlike most other national anthems. It focuses on the beauty of the country.
Lovely melody and lyrics! Love it!V6 Comments
Best thing about this anthem is it's praising it's land and people, not any land saving god or a queen
The Specialty of this National Anthem is the lyrics gives a direct identity to the uniqueness of Sri Lanka and at the end of the Anthem it says that Sri Lankans should go forward with the entire world as one human race.
This great country has a splendid and a wonderful national anthem which comprises its great mother land and praises its beauty and for her wonderful creations.
Most meaningful national anthemV25 Comments
I love how our national anthem is a mixture of Chinese music and some Soviet/Russian music influence. I just love it, it's glorious and courageous.
It's a very meaningful, full of passion and courage, brings you the feels of energy.
The national anthem must have the vision and its history.
( I am not a Chinese)
Uplifting, albeit being somewhat socialist.V21 Comments
Of peace enjoyed in perfect happiness
El Salvador always nobly dreamed.
To achieve this has been Her eternal proposition,
To keep it, Her greatest glory.
With inviolable faith, the path of progress
She strives to follow
To fulfil Her great destiny
And conquer a happy future.
A stern barrier protects Her
Against the clash of vile disloyalty,
Ever since the day when Her soaring Flag,
Wrote Freedom with Its blood
It is hard to appreciate the words of this National Anthem unless you understand Spanish. In my opinion is one of the most beautiful and the music speaks for it's self.
This anthem should defintey be in the top 5. It's melody is so beautiful and strong. The words are so gentle and poetic. It's easy to listen and feels so right in the heart as well as the ears. I believe this anthem is do underrated. Just listen to the melody and you will understand it's beauty.

Eternal Father bless our land
Guard us with Thy mighty hand
Keep us free from evil powers
Be our light through countless hours
To our leaders, Great Defender,
Grant true wisdom from above
Justice, truth be ours forever
Jamaica, land we love
Jamaica, Jamaica, Jamaica, land we love.
Teach us true respect for all
Stir response to duty's call
Strengthen us the weak to cherish
Give us vision lest we perish
Knowledge send us, Heavenly Father,
Grant true wisdom from above
Justice, truth be ours forever
Jamaica, land we love
Jamaica, Jamaica, Jamaica, land we love
It is a prayer for things people should need and have, while giving thanks to the most high.
This the best Anthem ever. Should be in the top 10 in fact.

Was made and introduced by one Indonesian young composer at that time, National Youth Congress 1928 and symbolized unity and it was made to bring unity for the people of Indonesia towards independence. For the people who shared blood and mostly everything, Indonesia RAYA - Glory for Indonesia.
Not with the lyric. But, when I hear the instrumental about this national anthem, there are something make my heart feel something different about this composition. And I cried while hearing this national anthem. And more, when I watch the video about the culture and another glories from this country which they have so many culture, that's make me cry.
The historic value of this shall never be forsaken. The song was made for unity and prosperity for Indonesia. It was made for the right reason to embrace by Indonesia. Glory Indonesia, Indonesia Raya, Indonesia Triumphant.
Best National Anthem ever...V90 Comments
This ranking list is not based on the qualities of the anthems but on the number of voters - understandably countries with large population are on the top. If you look into the musical features of the Bulgarian anthem - "It Is Simply The Best! "
I remember the first time remember hearing our anthem (may be I was 3 years old) and what I remember is having the goose bumps, I didn't know what country means nor what patriotism is, nor I understood the lyrics back then. The Bulgarian anthem is giving me the goose bumps ever since and makes me cry a little some times. It's simply the best song, not just the best anthem.
One of the most inspiring and nationalistic anthems out there. If people understood the lyrics, they would understand how much Bulgarians really love their country.
Just feel the melody, the drama, the harmonies... amazing!V16 Comments
The most amazing interpretation of love for
One's country, a country full of courage, beauty,
Treasures, biodiversity, extend wildlife and very many
Wonderful things that are only felt by a blessed person who was born in Colombia!
Love Colombian anthem is so rich and describes pretty much all the courage and beauty that the country owns!
Beautiful lyrics. Very original. Great music, rhythm, tempo all come to together perfectly should be #1. Best national anthem in the world
Colombia's national anthem describes how the country was able to gain its independence from Spain, and the best part is when it says "to follow the words of the one who was nailed to the cross (Jesus)". Love it!V39 Comments
The changes in tempo are catchy and unusual, and the lyrics perfectly sum up the ideals of liberty that the Argentine revolution stood for when the anthem was first written.
Listen, mortals, the sacred anthem. Liberty, liberty, liberty. Listen to the sound of broken chains. Give the throne to noble equity. This and la marseillese are the most beautiful anthems on Earth.
The intro is amazing... the tempo, the ups and downs, incredible. The finale, beautiful. Should be in the top 10

Beautiful, traditional, easy to sing for young and old. This is in the heart of the nations people and therefore a popular song for almost 450 years!
Beautiful melody, and one that does not sound like an amusement ride song
The only anthem that tells the story in the I-form, making it very personal. The structure is complex and the melody is borrowed from an enemy 's song, making it full with meaning and history.
It's the only anthem written as a thematic chiasmus. Search that word in WikipediaV9 Comments
The tune is catchy and melodic. The lyrics are short but have deep meanings. They all seem to blend together well.
Malaysia anthem is called Negaraku. Find and hear it in youtube. It is better and 70% powerful anthem. Don't believe some pigs that say to you about TERANG BULAN. Just search about Negaraku if you feel anxious... Peace! :-)
I think Terang Bulan is another song made before this one. Sounds different, not really same.V7 Comments
I love to hear it. It's very patriotic and powerful. I'm an Albanian and I am very proud when I hear it. GO Albania!
Patriotic Anthem... With a big meaning for a great country
Really? 89? Albania has the most beautiful anthem. It should be in top 10!
This is a very good oneV7 Comments
The greatest anthem in the world!
It's better then the Germany national anthem
It's so inspirational! Just read the first two lines of the anthem, and remember how Poland lost independence for 123 years, yet still carried on with patriotism and national pride. I might be bias, but I personally love this anthem.
Greatest anthem.V20 Comments
The melody is one of the best among world's anthems - it's impossible not to feel strongly emotional when you hear it. Powerful and touching, there is no way it shouldn't go at least top 5.
Should be on top 10, it is one of the best in the world, stirring and uplifting.
Obviously people only vote on their own countries, cause this is pure inspiration and uplifting beauty
Should be top 10, it talks about our past on the seaV28 Comments
