Yes there has been discussion over the years to get a new Australian flag because some people don't want the Union Jack there. I hate the idea of changing something like the flag or anthem because they are part of history and a part of the country that I love.

Obviously you're a very conservative person but there is good change and bad change. Personally I would like to see the Union Jack removed from the flag simply because Australia is pretty much totally independent from Britain - though it can wait until we're actually a republic. It's just anachronistic to have the Union Jack emblazoned there now. It's misleading and looks silly.

The Dominican National anthem is actually quite a nice song. Very pretty.

The Spanish National anthem has a nice tune to it, but it dosent have lyrics! The lyrics Spain used to have was way too "political".

The American national anthem is nice but too war oriented for my tastes.

The former Yugoslav(ian) anthem...i'm bias when it comes to it...and the reason i love hearing the Polish anthem is the fact that they're almost indentical except the Polish is more up beat

The Russian anthem...it gives off the powerful vibe



And notable mentions:

-Gigi's performance of the Italian anthem at euro2008

-Chilean junior football team...i have never in my live heard anyone sing their national anthem like that...hands down

The Norwegian is quite boring. The Swedish one sounds better when sped up.

Yes, I love Polish too coz of ^^^. Almost identical.

But my vote went to Italian anthem. I like Hispano anthems, Chilean the most. Than Polish, Croatian, France...

Jedna si Jedina

the "new" Bosnian anthem doesnt have words but nobody gives a shit about it since its being forced on them by the EU and whoever..so when ever they start playing it the music from the new one...the crowd signs over it with the words from old one....

I like watching the beginning of rugby's match france /scotland, Flowers of scotland is just great !
Brazilian / spanish /american anthems are ok too.
