List Of National Anthems Of World Countries And Territories

Last updated on September 29th, 2021

Wherever you live in the world, chances are you grew up learning about the national symbols of your homeland. Chief among said national symbols are national anthems. In short, national anthems are the song of the nation and often embody the collective values and pride of the given nation-state in its lyrics.

Importantly, most national anthems have gone through quite a journey to become what they are today. For starters, many of the songs that we have come to know as national anthems did not start out as such. It took more than a century for the national anthem of the United States to be named as such.

 

In addition to evolving over time, many national anthems have had several writers and have had the lyrics and melodies revised over time. This is understandable. After all, common societal values are likely to evolve with the people of the nation. It often follows that the national song or anthem should reflect said evolved values and not merely the values of the time in which it was first written. Both the lyrics and the melody will evolve in this regard.
