National anthem thread

Postby Medwedian Democratic Federation » Wed Feb 07, 2018 8:46 am

Here, you can post and discuss national anthems of NationStates nations, their tunes and lyrics.

I want to compose an anthem myself, but for now, This Is Our Land from the 1984 soundtrack is the anthem of Medwedia.

Since I'm a fan of France's national anthem, the tune is from La Marseillaise.
"All I wish is to see the world burn."

Example, NK lies and says they are democratic and are not, the US lies and says we are free yet we incarcerate millions for a medical plant. See we are basically a larger more populated North Korea.

While I do not have any useful sources of our anthem, we use instrumentals in the matter. All things we use is instruments, really. Though most of it comes to play when ceremonies comes along.

I.
Gloria, gloria, corona de la patria
Soberana luz, ¡que es oro en tu pendón!
Bida, bida, futuro de la patria,
¡Que en tus ojos es abierto corazón!
Púrpura y oro, bandera inmortal
En tus colores, juntas, carne y alma están.
Púrpura y oro, querer y lograr
Tú eres, bandera, el signo del humano afán.

II.
¡Pide, España! Tu nombre llebaremos
Donde quieras tú, ¡que honrarlo es nuestra ley!
¡Manda, España, y unidos lucharemos,
Porque bibas tú, sin tregua pueblo y rey!
Una bandera gloriosa nos das
¡Nadie, bibiendo, España, nos la arrancará!
Para que, un día, nos pueda cubrir,
¡Danos, España, el gozo de morir por ti!

III.
«¡Biba España!» Del grito de la patria,
¡La explosión triunfal abrió camino al sol!
«¡Biba España!» Repiten beinte pueblos
¡Y al hablar dan fe del ánimo español!
¡Marquen arado martillo y clarín
Su noble ritmo al grito de la patria fe!
¡Guíe la mente a la mano hasta el fin,
Al «¡Biba España!» asista toda España en pie!



For the instrumental version, only 1 verse must be played. But for the vocal version, all 3 verses must be sung. After singing the last verse, it is also traditional to shout ¡Biba España! (Long live Spain!).
I RP as the Spanish Empire.

This is our anthem, but the word "Finland" is replaced with "Viksberg".
♚United Viksberg♚ - "Home, religion, fatherland"

What would have happened if the Royal Army won the Viksbergian civil war in 1918? In this universe, that's exactly what happened. Viksberg drove away the communist menace and is now a powerful constitutional monarchy in Northern Europe. But what will happen next?

This nation is an alternate universe version of Viksberg

Per the National Anthem Act 1904, the Gandoorese national anthem is L'Internationale, with the officially recognized lyrics being performed in the original French, despite French not being one of our official languages nor widely spoken in Gandoor.

The official lyrics as specified in the Act are as follows:
Debout, les damnés de la terre
Debout, les forçats de la faim
La raison tonne en son cratère
C'est l'éruption de la fin
Du passé faisons table rase
Foule esclave, debout, debout
Le monde va changer de base
Nous ne sommes rien, soyons tout

C'est la lutte finale
Groupons-nous, et demain
L'Internationale
Sera le genre humain

L'État comprime et la loi triche
L'impôt saigne le malheureux
Nul devoir ne s'impose au riche
Le droit du pauvre est un mot creux
C'est assez, languir en tutelle
L'égalité veut d'autres lois
Pas de droits sans devoirs dit-elle
Égaux, pas de devoirs sans droits

C'est la lutte finale
Groupons-nous, et demain
L'Internationale
Sera le genre humain

The lyrics used for our national anthem differ slightly from the original lyrics because the second stanza, which referred to the non-existence of God, was removed to avoid conflict with our nation's separation of church and state.

The primary national anthem is 'My Country, 'Tis of Thee', adopted in 1928 under the Cox administration; a secondary, unofficial anthem is 'Hail Columbia', a song which had been popular in the last century, though the former had gained in popularity following the conclusion of the War of Secession and in the lead-up to the First Great War.

Det finns ett härligt land

Basically, a complete ripoff of the Danish national anthem IRL, although Toin's version has no official lyrics nor does the government have any plans to make any lyrics.

There's also the flag anthem, Flagghälsan, a complete ripoff of the Norwegian national anthem (this one), although officially the first stanza is the only thing played or sung.

Oh, there's also the royal anthem, Hälsa Royals, which officially is to be sung with only lyrics. They are:


Han ska alltid skydda oss!
Victor jag kämpade för oss,
Och lyckades mot svenska,
Och sprang dem ut!

Oberoende för evigt!
Åh, tusenårsåldern,
Skall du skydda kungen?
Han kommer alltid leva!
Gud bevare kungen!

Gud bevare kungen!
Gud bevare kungen!

Royal Anthem: Het Wilhelmus / The Wilhelmus

Fun Fact: The Royal Anthem is in Dutch due to the Royal Family's ancestor is the William of Orange(William the Silent) of the Netherlands.


DutchEnglish
Wilhelmus van Nassouwe
ben ik, van Duitsen bloed,
den vaderland getrouwe
blijf ik tot in den dood.
Een Prinse van Oranje
ben ik, vrij onverveerd,
den Koning van Hispanje
heb ik altijd geëerd.

Mijn schild ende betrouwen
zijt Gij, o God mijn Heer,
op U zo wil ik bouwen,
Verlaat mij nimmermeer.
Dat ik doch vroom mag blijven,
uw dienaar t'aller stond,
en de tirannie verdrijven
die mijn hart doorwondt.
William of Nassau
am I, of native blood.
Loyal to the fatherland
I will remain until I die.
A prince of Orange
am I, quite fearless.
The king of Spain
I have always honoured.

My shield and reliance
are you, o God my Lord.
It is you on whom I want to rely,
never leave me again.
[Grant] that I may remain brave,
your servant for always,
and [may] defeat the tyranny,
which pierces my heart.


National Anthem: Auferstanden Aus Ruinen / Risen above Ruins


GermanEnglish
Auferstanden aus Ruinen
Und der Zukunft zugewandt,
Lass uns dir zum Guten dienen,
Carlsvad, einig Vaterland.
Alte Not gilt es zu zwingen,
Und wir zwingen sie vereint,
Denn es muss uns doch gelingen,
Daß die Sonne schön wie nie
Über Carlsvad scheint,
Über Carlsvad scheint.

Glück und Friede sei beschieden
Carlsvad , unser'm Vaterland.
Alle Welt sehnt sich nach Frieden,
Reicht den Völkern eure Hand.
Wenn wir brüderlich uns einen,
Schlagen wir des Volkes Feind.
Lasst das Licht des Friedens scheinen,
Dass nie eine Mutter mehr
Ihren Sohn beweint,
Ihren Sohn beweint.

Lasst uns pflügen, lasst uns bauen,
Lernt und schafft wie nie zuvor,
Und der eignen Kraft vertrauend,
Steigt ein frei Geschlecht empor.
Carlsvad Jugend, bestes Streben
Uns'res Volks in dir vereint,
Wirst du Carlsvads neues Leben,
Und die Sonne schön wie nie
Über Carlsvad scheint,
Über Carlsvad scheint.
Risen from ruins
And facing the future,
Let us serve you for the good,
Carlsvad, united fatherland.
Old woes are to be overcome
And we overcome them united
Because we so must succeed,
[So] that the sun beautiful as never [before]
Over Carlsvad shines,
Over Carlsvad shines.

Happiness and peace be granted
To Carlsvad , our fatherland.
All the world longs for peace,
Reach your hand out to the peoples.
If brotherly we unite ourselves,
We shall defeat the people's enemy.
Let the light of peace shine
So that a mother never more
Mourns her son,
Mourns her son.

Let us plough, let us build,
Learn and create like never before,
And, confident in existing strength,
A free generation rises up.
Carlsvad youth, best efforts
Of our people united in you,
You will become Carlsvad's new life.
And the sun beautiful as never,
Over Carlsvad shines,
Over Carlsvad shines.

Minute Of Forever

The flame
Between our aim
It's a minute, to never be forgot
Our dreams will not rot!
We will believe!
And achieve!

From the minute of forever
We chant around the ember
We achieve our goals!
We won't fall!
From the minute of forever

The shadow
We know
The seaside
We ride
The light
They won't bite

From the minute of forever
We chant around the ember
We achieve our goals!
We won't fall!
From the minute of forever


You know what they say
It's a new day
Each flower
Has power
Is this all a dream?
Did I blast like a lazer beam?


From the minute of forever
We chant around the ember
We achieve our goals!
We won't fall!
From the minute of forever

I hope I'm locked away
Evil spirits away this day
The only way to live is words
Life is like a house of cards

When singing the national anthem or listening to the instrumental, people are required to do the Battle Cry Salute* while military and paramilitary personnel (including retired veterans) are required to do the Zhouranese Military Salute*. It is common to see individuals shed tears during the anthem as a display of emotional connection and spiritual bond to the Zhouranese Motherland & People.

The Battle Cry Salute is a Zhouranese gesture created in late 1861. Although traditionally used for yelling or chanting battle cries, it can also be used as a greeting and as a symbol of solidarity and support. When doing the salute, the right arm is held out forward straight and raised upward at an angle. The index finger and middle finger are both extended upwards while the last two digits are curled downwards against the palm. As for the thumb, it is slightly curled. The use of the three digits symbolizes loyalty, honor and strength.


Created on July 23, 1860, the Zhouranese military salute is performed with a flat hand, with the thumb resting on the index finger, and the head tilted back with chin up. The hand is slightly tilted to the front so that the thumb can not be seen. The upper arm is horizontal and the fingers point to the temple but do not touch it or the headgear.

Why do all national anthems sound so Western?

Like why is the Phrygian Scale never used in anthems of Eastern countries
f.ex, the most beatiful scale of all?
I mean anthems are supposed to express the spirit of a country and nation.
As if it's a rule that all anthems somehow have to sound European?

This is why I personally haven't found a single anthem that I find actually
interesting, seriously, all anthems sound almost the same to me, boring. #MyOpinion

Ex-Nation

Since my nation is similar in ways to Estonia, I chose an Estonian patriotic song as my nations anthem, called "Ilus Maa""Ilus Maa" or in English, Beautiful land. I wanted it to be a song not focusing too much on war, or on "glory greatness", but just on beauty and pride of the land, and on keeping the land beautiful for those to come. :)

Lyrics:

Ilus on suvi ja õhtu,
loojangu värve, langeb me pääle.
Ilus on öö, tähtedevöö,
võimsaid soove kiirgab me pääle.
Tähed, mis õhtuti tõusevad,
hommikul tagasi rändavad
isade maale, isade maale.

Õhtud, mis ööaega sõuavad,
hulguvad, otsivad, jõuavad,
pärale hommikumaale
isade maale

Ilus, ilus, ilus on maa,
ilus on maa, mida armastan.
Ilus, ilus, ilus on maa,
ilus on maa, mida armastan.

Maa tuleb täita lastega
ja täita lastelastega
ja lastelastelastega
maa tuleb täita lastega

ja laulude la lastega
ja köige vastu võidelda
mis võõrastav vöi vaenulik
mis vaenulik või valelik
ja vöidelda kus võimalik
kus võimalik ja valjalik
sest elu kõik on ajalik
ja lastele jääb tulevik
ja maa ja kõik see minevik
maa tuleb täita lastega
ja lastelastelastega
kui olev tahab olemist
ja tuleviku tulemist
maa tuleb täita lastega
maa oma enda lastega
ja laulude ja lastega
maa tuleb täita lastega.

Ilus on maa,
ilus on maa, mida armastan.
Ilus, ilus, ilus on maa,
ilus on maa, mida armastan.

Ilus, ilus, ilus on maa,
ilus on maa, ilus on maa,
Mida armastan.

Ilus, ilus, ilus on maa,
ilus on maa,
Mida armastan.

Translation:

Beautiful is the summer and its evening,
The colours of the sunset descend upon us.
So beautiful is the night, with the stream of stars,
Majestic wishes radiate upon us,
The stars that rise in the evening
At daybreak travel back
To the land of our forefathers, to the land of our forefathers

The evening has rowed all night,
Wanders, searches, arrives
In the morning at land,
To the land of our forefathers

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful is the land
Beautiful is the land, That I love.
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful is the land,
Beautiful is the land, That I love.

The land must be filled with children
And filled with children’s children
And with children’s children’s children
The land must be filled with children

And with songs and children
And fight against all unfriendly things
Which are timid or hostile
Which are hostile or false
And fight where possible
Where possible and necessary
Since life is temporary
And the future belongs to the children
And the land and its past
The land must be filled with children
And with children’s children’s children
When the present needs to be
And the future must come
The land must be filled with children
The land’s very own children
And with song and with children
The land must be filled with children.

beautiful is the land,
beautiful is the land, That I love.
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful is the land,
Beautiful is the land, That I love.

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful is the land,
Beautiful is the land, beautiful is the land
That I love.

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful is the land,
Beautiful is the land
That I love.
