2 South Africa South Africa South Africa, officially the Republic of South Africa, is the southernmost sovereign state in Africa. It is bounded on the south by 2,798 kilometers of coastline of Southern Africa stretching along the South Atlantic and Indian Oceans, on the north by the neighbouring countries of Namibia, Botswana more.

They have a really good anthem and it is so catchy

It was so nice at the olympics

Just powerful and unifying.

It's my favorite overall anthem for a few reasons.

1. It has a message of unity and peace which, given it's history, is unfitting and fitting at the same time. No mention of war, might or violence. Just prayers and hopes for safety and whatnot.

2. It's a hybrid with 5 languages. The first part associated with the anti-apartheid, the second one used during apartheid. It's really touching, since they decided to show their history and present with it, even though apartheid was such a bad time. And 5 of the most used languages? That's an act of unity from what I see (Like the flag, too). It doesn't marginalize the natives by having lyrics in Xhosa, Zulu and Sesotho, while it also includes the former colonizers with Afrikaans and English. This says a lot, since black and white people there had a lot of animosity for each other in the past.

3. It's pretty beautiful. I wish it had at least some tune with African influences like the Kenyan one (both tunes are European), ...more - Midiot
