List of national anthems

Redirected from National anthem

A national anthem is a generally patriotic musical composition that is formally recognized by a country's government as their state's official national song.

During the 19th and 20th centuries, with the rise of the national state, most countries have adopted a national anthem, which can exist beside other commonly sung patriotic songs.

The names of nations that do no longer exist, or are not independent states but nevertheless have official anthems, are italicized.
