21 Ukraine Ukraine Ukraine is a sovereign country in Eastern Europe, bordered by Russia to the east and northeast, Belarus to the northwest, Poland and Slovakia to the west, Hungary, Romania, and Moldova to the southwest, and the Black Sea and Sea of Azov to the south and southeast, respectively.

INCREDIBLE.
Amazing music, realization. And I've just translated lyrics - marvelous! Really, it touched my heart.
Ukrainians, you should be proud of your country!

Just open your ears and listen.

Because I love Ukrainian freedom, love, simplicity, culture, etc.

This anthem is more emotional and musically talented than all the rest. The Russian anthem is great, but can't compare to this. One of the only things about the country that lots of people agree on as far as I've seen. Best musical piece devised.

22 Turkey Turkey Turkey was established on October 29th, 1923. It is located in Westernmost Asia or Southeastern Europe. ...read more.

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.

I like this

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!

A wonderful classical tune and lyrics representing the historical struggles and hope for freedom from tyranny.

The pople who don't like this song well shame on you because is better than the one that I have listened to this one

24 Australia Australia Australia, officially known as the Commonwealth of Australia, is a country comprising the mainland of the Australian continent, the island of Tasmania, and numerous smaller islands . Australia has a very warm climate and is very dry .

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 love the Australian national anthem! It is Advance Australia Fair.

A lot of people think this is boring, however when sung well it is amazing

There has been lots of talk that we should change it. - micahisthebest

To me is the best it is funny and makes me cry all the time I hear it this should be at the top.

27 Wales Wales Wales is a country that is part of the United Kingdom. Located on the island of Great Britain, it is bordered by England to the east, the Irish Sea to the north and west, and the Bristol Channel to the south.

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!

Absolutely wonderful... Haunting and melodic. Deserves to be much higher up.

Namo is a word in this anthem.

Its a best anthem ever I heard

perfect

29 Spain Spain Spain, 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!

No need lyric, just the majesty of the Royal March!

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

30 El Salvador El Salvador El Salvador, officially the Republic of El Salvador, is the smallest and the most densely populated country in Central America.

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.

Best national anthem

31 Argentina Argentina Argentina, officially the Argentine Republic, is a federal republic located in southeastern South America.

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

One of the most beautiful anthems ( if not the most). Great tempo, orchestral arrangements and great lyrics

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

As a american I love the Star Spangled Banner however The Soviet Anthem sounds so epic and heroic and in my opinion is better - christangrant

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

By far one of the most powerful anthems there is and ever was. - SpicyMemeMan

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.

Polish anthem is the most beautiful very powerful the best national anthem in the planet

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.

35 Netherlands Netherlands

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.

Love that its one of the older songs and that it is still honouring the king of spain who in that time period ruled over the dutch but started a movement towards the protestant church.

36 Bulgaria Bulgaria Bulgaria, officially the Republic of Bulgaria, was established in 681 ad. and since then it never changed it's name, which makes it one of the oldest countries in Europe. Located in the Balkan Peninsula between Greece, Turkey, Romania, Serbia, Macedonia and Black Sea. The Capital of Bulgaria is Sofia, ...read more.

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.

Bulgara has the best anthem in the world admit that. Just listen to it

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.

It's the best!

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 sea
