It might be an interesting thread; I never really listened to other countries anthems closely enough.
I definitely like Russian anthem though - it's powerful and easily recognizable ( although I never really learned the words)))

So here is Russian anthem.
Let everyone post anthems of their countries.
let's listen and compare.


˜… Russia Anthem 2010 “имн *оссии (a capella) [BEST VERSION] ˜… - YouTube

These are the ( most recent) lyrics I suppose in English from Wikipedia;

Russia – our sacred homeland,
Russia – our beloved country.
A mighty will, great glory –
These are your heritage for all time!
Chorus:
Be glorious, our free Fatherland
Age-old union of fraternal peoples,
Ancestor-given wisdom of the people!
Be glorious, our country! We are proud of you!
From the southern seas to the polar lands
Spread are our forests and fields.
You are unique in the world, one of a kind –
This native land protected by God!
Chorus
Wide spaces for dreams and for living
Are opened for us by the coming years
Our loyalty to the Fatherland gives us strength.
Thus it was, thus it is and thus it always will be!
Chorus


National Anthem of Russia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I have always liked God Defend New Zealand, an interesting thing about the Kiwi's is they have never formally voted God Save the Queen out as their National Anthem. So they actually have two official national anthems, but to my knowledge you will almost never hear the second one sung.

Now when I started listening closely to anthems of different countries, they definitely reflect the national character.

This is Italian one.
Reminds me of Italian opera.
I like it.

The French national anthem is my favourite in the world. It is the most familiar national anthem to me for some bizarre reason.

The best national anthems by far are Russia and South Africa.

Uzbekistan is the worst.
