Introduction to National Anthems

National Anthems, official national songs honoring the spirit of the native land. Some anthems specifically celebrate a historical personage or event; others exalt the beauty of the country. A number of anthems are simply melodies without words, often no more than brief fanfares. In the following listing of national anthems, with information on their origins, titles are given insofar as they exist; many anthems are known conventionally by their first lines. The date of adoption indicates the year in which a country officially adopted its national anthem.” (1)
