The motto on the US $1 note is 'In God We Trust'. I haven't seen atheists rebelling yet. And I think you see your green George more often than you hear the anthem of some foreign country.

Italy's will always be the best, IMO:

Oh, I love Mawtini so much right now! It's the flowing Arabic verse that does it for me really, and the great tune as well.

Niue is not actually an independent country, but how do you all think of Niue's national anthem "Ko E Iki He Lagi"?

I think the anthems of Armenian and Georgian SSR sound better than post-Soviet counterparts, of course except the lyrics.

Be glorious eternally, our homeland,
You are an inextinguishable forge of heroes;
You gave the world great Stalin,
Who intensified destroyed the slavery of nations.

Hm… favourite anthems. So, my favourite is probably the anthem of :tyv: Tuva, which is rather unique. Also in Russia, there's the :udm: Udmurtian anthem (I'm amazed those flags are a thing here, btw). Other favourites include :kaz: Kazakhstan and :deu: East Germany. The latter one is, imo, much better than the current German anthem, both musically and lyrically. "Risen from ruins and facing the future".

Honorable mention for the anthem of :som: Somaliland.

I agree that these are nice, particularly Tuva's and East Germany's.

Is it me, or is the previous anthem of Tuva better than the current one?

Call me biased, but I love the Puerto Rican national anthem, despite the lack of a flag. However, it's been horribly mistreated—the original lyrics were a revolutionary call to arms, but the territorial government changed the lyrics because they were held to be far too inflammatory for official adoption. The official arrangement of the anthem is a slow march, completely removing the sass and style from the original danza. Nevertheless, that doesn't stop Puerto Ricans from performing it with all the style in world [:D].

I don't know if there are any other music nerds on this forum, but musically La Borinqueña has a few distinctive features. Much like Hatikvah, most of the song is written in a minor key (in the case of the :isr: Israeli national anthem, natural minor; in that of Puerto Rico's, melodic anthem), but it modulates into the major of that key which Hatikvah doesn't do.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PGhAlnHbUIM (a video of famed cuatrista Quique Domenech interpreting the national anthem WITH the original revolutionary lyrics)

As I've always said: the only national anthem you can dance to.
