Well, there's O Canada, but, you hardly need me to tell you about that.

Howsabout the more provincial...

Proud of my country for that... No religion is too 'overpowering' and it's not shoved down our throat. No mention of deity's in the National Day Parade, only celebrating the PEOPLE. :thumbsup:for welsh too.

RE: Your national anthem
Lijepa naša domovino

Lijepa nasa domovino,
Oj junacka zemljo mila,
Stare slave djedovino,
Da bi vazda sretna bila!
Mila, kano si nam slavna,
Mila si nam ti jedina.
Mila, kuda si nam ravna,
Mila, kuda si planina!
Teci Savo, Dravo teci,
Nit' ti Dunav silu gubi,
Sinje more svijetu reci,
Da svoj narod Hrvat ljubi.
Dok mu njive sunce grije,
Dok mu hrasce bura vije,
Dok mu mrtve grobak krije,
Dok mu živo srce bije!


Our beautiful homeland,
O so fearless and gracious.
Our fathers' ancient glory,
May you be blessed forever.
Dear, you are our only glory,
Dear, you are our only one,
Dear, we love your plains,
Dear, we love your mountains.
Sava, Drava, keep on flowing,
Danube, do not lose your vigor,
Deep blue sea, tell the world,
That a Croat loves his homeland.
Whilst his fields are kissed by sunshine,
Whilst his oaks are whipped by wild winds,
Whilst his dear ones go to heaven, (this one is not properly translated, it should be something like: Whilst the grave hides his dear ones)
Whilst his live heart beats.

Hmmm, this videos has a much better translation.

RE: Your national anthem
DLJ, I have been away for a few days so missed your posting of the Welsh anthem. So then the national team (rugby) went out and kicked the snot out of the brits. I personally would have been scared shitless in that stadium if I was the opponent.

To bad you cannot also kick them out of your country, Scotland as well.

Nothing says more about the brits use of their supposed countrymen than using bagpipers to lead charges in WWI.

You can be a ludicrously petty nationalist if you like, BUT:

Britain is by definition England, Scotland and Wales. So get your slurs right!

RE: Your national anthem
