Countries With the Best National Anthems

61 Ecuador Ecuador Ecuador, officially the Republic of Ecuador, is a representative democratic republic in northwestern South America, bordered by Colombia on the north, Peru on the east and south, and the Pacific Ocean to the west.

This is the best, if you don't like it you are not human! Ecuador's national anthem is the greatest, most beautiful anthem ever!

I think that this list is completely wrong. Firstly must be France and then Ecuador because both of them have a lot of story behind their lyrics.

A lot meaning and history behind it

This is really the best, its sound and lyrics are very beautiful.

63 Thailand Thailand Thailand, officially the Kingdom of Thailand, formerly known as Siam, is a country at the centre of the Indochinese peninsula in Mainland Southeast Asia.

To be honest, the lyrics of this anthem is about the military and autonomy. But, if you try to look more clearer, you will see that this anthem is terrible and just a pride of the country's past since the country is going more horrible nowadays too. They are making people to sacrifice their blood only for the country, no matter what, and living in the military's systems. The fact is that this anthem will play around the country on 7 AM and 6 PM, and you will have to stand up, waiting for the anthem to be over so you will be able to do anything, but somehow some people don't care about it, and if you even dare to dance on this anthem, you will get condemned so bad because it is a sign of being a rebel, and if you don't sing the anthem along, it means you don't love the country too... So, I think it is enough to say about it. (Logic: Singing the anthem louder, means you love the country more) - InfinityZCraft

I love Thailand national anthem

I love Thailand national anthem

I am Thai, but I will admit our anthem isn't the best in terms of melody. But the meaning is quite similar to most others: strive for unity, have courage in war, our blood is split on this land our country. LONG LIVE THAILAND ชโย!

67 Kazakhstan Kazakhstan Kazakhstan, 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...

Both the real and parody versions are good

Both the real version and the parody are amazing - GriffinDoge

73 Austria Austria Austria 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

Hitla homeland. Watch out bois

74 Serbia Serbia Serbia, 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

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

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.

Cosmic lyrics. Unforgettable melody. Should be near the top!
The only anthem whose first word is - 'God', and second word - 'righteousness' (justice). A reminder of our place in creation. If you just replace the word "Serbian' with any other nation, it fits just as well.

75 Dominican Republic Dominican Republic The Dominican Republic is a sovereign state occupying the Eastern two thirds of the island of Hispaniola, in the Greater Antilles archipelago in the Caribbean region.

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 in the world. The lyrics are pure poetry and pure patriotism; the melody is astonishing. This should be at least in the top 10.

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.

80 Slovenia Slovenia Slovenia, 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.

Beyond nationalism... towards humanity!
