    Which is your favourite?

    Mine would have to be The Scottish one, Flower of Scotland. (Maybe because I am of Scottish blood, who knows )

    What do you think of it?

    I'm part Welsh, and that anthem just makes the hairs stand up on the back of my neck.

    I think there's 'errors' in the second part! :p:

    I like Land Of Hope And Glory, it's quite a nice song to sing with other people, very passionate. God Save The Queen seems to have lost its' effect on me a bit.

    On the other hand, I don't really like fast-paced national anthems, I think it makes them unlike 'anthems', if that makes sense.

    of Scottish blood = racism! To prove my point about so-called "patriotic" movements being quite racist. So if you're black, you can't be a Scot? Well you can be a Brit which explains why I see very few positive things coming out of nationalist movements.

    Flower of Scotland, of course, but I quite like the Canadian anthem.

    Just on about the fact that the British nation is more racially inclusive. Scottish and English nationalist movements are not.

    Yes the Canadian national anthem is cool.

    Ouviram do Ipiranga as margens plácidas
    De um povo heróico o brado retumbante,
    E o sol da liberdade, em raios fúlgidos,
    Brilhou no céu da Pátria nesse instante.
    Se o penhor dessa igualdade
    Conseguimos conquistar com braço forte,
    Em teu seio, ó Liberdade,
    Desafia o nosso peito à própria morte!
    Ó Pátria amada,
    Idolatrada,
    Salve! Salve!
    Brasil, um sonho intenso, um raio vívido
    De amor e de esperança à terra desce,
    Se em teu formoso céu risonho e límpido,
    A imagem do Cruzeiro resplandece.
    Gigante pela própria natureza,
    És belo, és forte, impávido colosso,
    E o teu futuro espelha essa grandeza
    Terra adorada,
    Entre outras mil
    És tu, Brasil.
    Ó Patria amada!
    Dos filhos deste solo és mãe gentil,
    Pátria amada,
    Brasil!

    Deitado eternamente em berço esplêndido
    Ao som do mar e à luz do céu profundo,
    Fulguras, ó Brasil, florão da América,
    Iluminado ao sol do Novo Mundo!
    Do que a terra mais garrida
    Teus risonhos, lindos campos têm mais flores,
    "Nossos bosques têm mais vida"
    "Nossa vida", no teu seio, "mais amores"
    Ó Pátria amada,
    Idolatrada,
    Salve! Salve!
    Brasil, de amor eterno seja símbolo
    O lábaro que ostentas estrelado,
    E diga o verde-louro desta flâmula
    - Paz no futuro e glória no passado.
    Mas, se ergues da justiça a clava forte,
    Verás que um filho teu não foge à luta
    Nem teme quem te adora, a própria morte,
    Terra adorada
    Entre outras mil,
    És tu Brasil,
    Ó Pátria amada!
    Dos filhos deste solo és mãe gentil,
    Pátria amada,
    Brasil!
