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:

Romania's is also good:

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.
Spoiler:
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?
