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.

Written by poets, the music is melodious and pleasant to listen to. It is patriotic yet gentle. Not a call to war, but a call to peace and love. I enjoy listening to the music and the lyrics.

It's really beautiful! The last paragraph where it talks about the native bird, the quetzal, flying higher than the condor and royal eagle is stunning. Everything in this anthem is absolutely lovely. The melody is soothing, inspiring. All anthems are beautiful but this one is a step above.

I think this is the most beautiful national anthem in the world. The lyrics make you feel very patriotic and gives you the desire to fight for this country. The melody is just so beautiful

It's amazing to hear it again, I just back when I was on school days in Guatemala, but now is on my hart and memories, Is a beautiful melody that express a lot things in a few words

47KenyaKenya, officially the Republic of Kenya, is a country in Africa and a founding member of the East African Community.

Kenya's anthem pray to God first to bless the land urges the citizens to be patriotic, peaceful, unified, free, defend our homeland and be hardworking for current and future generations' prosperity among others and praises the land of Kenya... The rhythm is the sweetest in the world; smooth, heavy and with pomp. It like a large mass of water moving E. G in a large river that's not flooded at the time... watch any finals of a long distance race in the world and you'll here the sweetness for real... I love the song and above all the country Kenya.

One of the best anthems in the world! Just youtube it and judge for yourself

This is a stand-out melody with some very spiritual lyrics. It must belong in the top 20 of national anthems. And I've never even been to Africa!

A very beautiful anthem it surely should be on the top 20

Sweden is the best nation that ever will exist, we are gods among ants. That's more then enough.

Along with Russia's the most inspiring and emotional anthem.

It deserved to be in top 5

49Soviet Union

This song is so powerful and touching. It just shows how much the people loved their country even through the ruling of Stalin

By far the best national anthem in the world! And I am not from Russia!

Still better than the current national anthem of Russia because of the Red Army Choir.

Loved it. The Red Army Choir nailed it.

50AzerbaijanAzerbaijan, officially the Republic of Azerbaijan, is a country in the Transcaucasian region, situated at the crossroads of Southwest Asia and Southeastern Europe.

The anthem creates a true feeling of patriotism. It contains a strong buildup and an intense and emotional climax. This anthem should at least be in the top 10 if not number 1. The fact that it is not ranked as high must be a result of the small population compared to other countries with a larger number of biased voters.

In consideration of its word the anthem could be ascribed to the top of 10. But length of music is too long which cause it drop to below 100 while one intelligent if listens it till the end would understand combination of music and lyrics that match up better than any other anthem in this list.

Blue, Red, Green, White, Blue, Red, Green, White, We have the four colored flag standing here, It is the best flag in the Middle East. It sometimes snows, It sometimes blows. God rule our highness, In our state. The white strong moon, the white tiny star. That is your anthem!

I am not from Azerbaijan but I also think that must be in top 10 I like this anthem

51United Arab EmiratesThe United Arab Emirates, sometimes simply called the Emirates or the UAE, is a country located at the southeast end of the Arabian Peninsula on the Persian Gulf, bordering Oman to the east and Saudi Arabia to the south, as well as sharing sea borders with Qatar and Iran.

I live in the UAE and there when I sing the national anthem in school with the whole class I feel so proud and happy thinking of how lucky me that I live in this country and our national day is on 2nd of December

The UAE national anthem contains a lot of purity and sense of belonging for the citizens. It is a symbol for maintaining the loyalty and obedience in the heart of all generations.

A symbol for maintaining the loyalty and obedience in the heart

53EgyptEgypt, officially the Arab Republic of Egypt, is a transcontinental country spanning the northeast corner of Africa and southwest corner of Asia, via a land bridge formed by the Sinai Peninsula.

Best national anthem by far! It's very inspiring and it really shows the love of Egyptians toward their country! God bless Egypt!

Another country's fighting, THIS IS MY PLACE! NO! IT IS Egypt'S! That was close. Now Egypt has the best anthem in Africa.

Egypt's history will always be filled with glory... By the faithful sons and their deeds...

The Music itself is moving, but the lyrics are just phenomenal.

54Montenegro

Absolutely majestic anthem. Strong, powerful, glorious, entrancing. Unique sound and musical, like no other. This is my favorite anthem along with Romania and Russia. I'm an American and frankly I'd much rather hear this anthem at events.

This is a good anthem now this is better. The flag and everything I know about this country

No word can describe the glorious feeling of awe while listening to this one! So much history and so much pride... Simply the best.

Anthem of the Milky Way

55KazakhstanKazakhstan, officially known as the Republic of Kazakhstan, is a country in northern Central Asia, with a sliver of its territory west of the Ural River extending into Eastern Europe.

I hate the asses who think that Borat's parody is the real national anthem, the real national anthem in named in English "My Country" and it tells how Kazakh people feel about they're motherland. So please, stop making fun of this, I bet that any American wouldn't be happy if they say "The White Man Marches" is the National Anthem of the United States

Dramatic and catchy. I expect that the reason why this isn't further up is because it was ruined by a certain film...

Beautiful musically and has inspiring lyrics. Should be #1 in my opinion.

The best I've ever listen!

56SloveniaSlovenia, officially the Republic of Slovenia, is a nation state in southern Central Europe, located at the crossroads of main European cultural and trade routes.

God's blessing on all nations,
Who long and work for that bright day,
When o'er earth's habitations
No war, no strife shall hold its sway;
'Who long to see
That all men free,
No more shall foes, but neighbours be.

Original text is better, but English translation is done that way to suit original music and rhyme.

This anthem is very beautiful. Its meaning is deep and it also does not put only one nation first but all. It tells us to live in peace and be happy for others. Love from Italy!

It sings about every single person on Earth. It does notbput one nation first or speak ill of foreigners. It tells us to love and live in peace. It does not mention nationalism or religion. I love my anthem.

Its about humanity!

57IranIran, also known as Persia, officially the Islamic Republic of Iran, is a sovereign state in Western Asia.

After 1977 Islamic revolution, Iran anthem was changed and the new anthem is not comprehensive. it mainly about religious and political issues and in favour of ruling government. National anthem should be a reason for unity not separation. But people have their own anthem which I hoped to be Iran official anthem one day.

If only everyone knew the translation of it, it would be number one

I m American and I love this anthem america suck

Best one ever
