    Watching the European Championships I was struck by just how much better than the Britsh anthem many of the national anthems out there are.

    My favourite is, and always has been, the Russian anthem - absolutely friggin awesome. Like the Italian and (of course), the Spanish one too. Anyone have any other favourites?

    Has to be the Italian one for me.

    Even got an MP3 of it somewhere! :biggrin

    The Scotland one is depressing, one of the good things about not qualifying (again!) is that we dont have to hear it. :biggrin

    I like the croatian national anthem personally, 'Our Beautiful Homeland' its got really good words as well. All the national anthems you hear are usually about liberty and equality and a pride in their country, ours is about saving the queen. No wonder I don't feel passionate about it, I think the queen with all her security can look after herself! :D

    Nothing beats the Italian IMO - yet if you understand the words to the greek one and you bellowing it out with 30k other greeks its hair raising!!!! :biggrin

    Don't bother, zeb works for them.:twisted:

    Personally I like the Russian one. It just seems to reach inside of me to the core and fills me with inspiration (and I'm not even Russian). :salut

    You can find out a bit more here, including a translation.
