World Countries National Anthems

Almost all countries have a national anthem, defined as "a song, as of praise, devotion, or patriotism"; most anthems are either marches or hymns in style. A song or hymn can become a national anthem under the state's constitution, by a law enacted by its legislature, or simply by tradition. Below is the list of national anthems across the countries and territories.
