61SpainSpain, officially the Kingdom of Spain, is a sovereign state largely located on the Iberian Peninsula in southwestern Europe, with archipelagos in the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea, and several small territories on and near the north African coast.

Most beautiful anthem EVER! I love the National Anthem of France and the USA as well! Its just that the Spanish Royal Anthem is so majestic, regal and powerful sounding!

The royal March is a great representation of a proud country, hated by many and loved by more. Today Spain is in the avanguard of progressive thinking. It's national anthem is a March ahead, never look back. Number 4 for sure. For sue better than the number one voted Pakistan! are we kidding?

Great anthem. IT should be number four on the list, after France, Italy and the U.S.

The best anthem ever

A beautiful anthem, the music is out of this world and the lyrics are amazing... We sing our anthem with pride

Beautiful all together, lyrics, melody everything. I believe Peru was one of the the last countries to declare independence in South America because it's where Spain had its strongest and strength because of the gold found in Peru. The lyrics are simply touching.

The lyrics are amazing and the music is beautiful. It talks about the history of the country. The music sounds in an elegant way. A touching anthem!

Outstanding lyrics, full of history and strength. Perfect!

63GhanaGhana, officially called the Republic of Ghana, is a sovereign unitary presidential constitutional democracy, located along the Gulf of Guinea and Atlantic Ocean, in the subregion of West Africa.

This is the best ever in the whole world and makes me cry when I hear it. Just listen to the words.


Ghana's national anthem I will say it the best among the best composed of what the people of the said nation are, from the beginning they strive to emerge and yet emerging as an example all other African countries.

Its inspirational and touching

It's a little long but express too much patriotism to the country... I think this one should be at least in the top 25. It is one of the best!

Without a doubt, the best anthem in the world

In my opinion is the best reflecting the story of the nation in one anthem.

Best anthem ever, should be #1

72HungaryHungary is a sovereign state in Europe. It is situated in the Carpathian Basin and is bordered by Slovakia to the north, Romania to the east, Serbia to the south, Croatia to the southwest, Slovenia to the west, Austria to the northwest, and Ukraine to the northeast.

The most beautiful song in the world. The deep meaning of the hymn can only be felt by those who have experienced sorrow and joy. The translation cannot give back the true meaning of these words which reflect, faith, hope, and determination in the past, present, and future.

This song comes from heart and even if you understand no word it still makes you cry. Because even if you have never heard of Hungarian history, you know, sou feel these people have been struggling so much and still put on a bright smile.

Small country with a great hymn. Hymn is a prayer of a nation to God. It is not about glory or pride, no call to battle, it is "only" a prayer with a deep meaning.

One of the oldest HYMN that newer wil change.

73SerbiaSerbia, officially the Republic of Serbia, is a sovereign state situated at the crossroads between Central and Southeast Europe, covering the southern part of the Pannonian Plain and the central Balkans.

Just beautiful... Just beautiful. It really expresses the pride and struggles of this culturally rich nation

Too bad it's not REALLY all about the beauty of the music and the lyrics... It's also about how big the country is (hence, how well known and heard the anthem is) and, unfortunately and inexusably, the ugly politics. Otherwise, I can't understand that this one is not among the best ten.

Beautiful anthem.. Filled with feelings and emotions. So good

Strong and patriotic

75AustriaAustria was Celtic (Hallstadt) then as Noricum, part of the Roman Empire, Alaric, who took over Rome, studied at a monastery near Vienna. In the Middle Ages, the Holy Roman Emperors moved to Vienna, then Austria became separate. Medieval documents from Eastern Europe as far as West Ukraine were often more.

Most beautiful anthem of them all, just ahead of Scotland's and Wales's

What why is there no Austria? Just listen to it, so peaceful and calming. This anthem is the BEST

A melody where you have to smile and salute at the same time

A breathtaking melody, as serene as a sunny day in the Alps

It's some kind of patriotism song. The song contains the journey of Palestinians to the independence, until now recognized by 135 countries and become UN non-member country with Vatican City in 2012

It's a good song. When I hear it, it sounds very patriotism. It's write the journey of Palestinians to the independence... Very good song

Nigeria's anthem is undoubtedly the best in the world. From the lyrics to the tune. See this
Arise o compatriots
Nigerians call obey
To serve our father land
With Love and strength and Faith
The labour of our heros past
Shall never be in vain
To serve with heart and might
One nation bound in freedom, peace and unity. It also has a second stanza

To say the truth Nigeria have best national anthem in world is best I have ever had, I have had that of usa, Russia, South Africa India england ( of which is all about there elizabeth) and manyother countries, but Nigeria remains number one in the world, because it calls you to serve your nation with love, strength & faith, to serve with heart & might, believe me if they do this there nation calling with sincerity & genuine heart believe me this nation will be the best in world, is the sweetest among them all.

Its about serving the country with all their power for the sake of the pain and labour their heroes went through to librate the country for the greater good of their future.

Nice anthem but very soft, more like a melody you would sing to a child, rather than an anthem for a nation.

79CroatiaCroatia, officially the Republic of Croatia , is a sovereign state at the crossroads of Central Europe, Southeast Europe, and the Mediterranean . Its capital city is Zagreb . It is a member of the European Union . During the Cold War it was part of Yugoslavia .

How can someone not like this anthem it is the beautifulest thing I've ever heard. Yes, I'm only a kid but still our anthem is telling us about proud of all Croatians and every part of Croatia. Proud of Slavonia, Lika, Barania, Posavin, Istre and Zagoria. So live long in peace Croatia for all the kids and adults, for all the people and soliders that gave their lives for our liberty and independence. Support Croatia even if you are Croatians or even if you're not! CROATIA

How can someone not like it.. Have you heard it... All the pride of croats is in our national anthem :')

Croatia is part of Serbia, and always will be, we are the same people, just different beliefs. The anthem is OK though, if it where from a country that actually had it's own language, and culture.

My country, I love this, it's so awesome
