Scotland national anthem

O Flouer o Scotland,
Whan will we see
Your like again,
That focht and dee’d for,
Your wee bit Hill an Glen,
An stuid agin him,
Prood Edward’s Airmy,
An sent him hamewart,
Tae think again.

The Hills is bare nou,
An Autumn leafs
Lies thick an still,
Ower land that is lost nou,
That thae sae dearly held,
That stuid agin him,
Prood Edward’s Airmy,
An sent him hamewart,
Tae think again.

Thir days is past nou,
An in the past
They maun remain,
But we can aye rise nou,
An be the nation again,
That stuid agin him,
Prood Edward’s Airmy,
An sent him hamewart,
Tae think again.

O Flouer o Scotland,
Whan will we see
Your like again,
That focht an dee’d for,
Your wee bit Hill an Glen,
An stuid agin him,
Prood Edward’s Airmy,
An sent him hamewart,
Tae think again.

 

national anthem of Scotland

O Fhlùir na h-Alba,
cuin a chì sinn
an seòrsa laoich
a sheas gu bàs ‘son
am bileag feòir is fraoich,
a sheas an aghaidh
feachd uailleil Iomhair
‘s a ruaig e dhachaidh
air chaochladh smaoin.

Na cnuic tha lomnochd
‘s tha duilleach Foghair
mar bhrat air làr,
am fearann caillte
dan tug na seòid ud gràdh,
a sheas an aghaidh
feachd uailleil Iomhair
‘s a ruaig e dhachaigh
air chaochladh smaoin.

As Scotland is part of the United Kingdom, the British national anthem God save the queen is used in Scotland for example for royal occasions, or when Scottish athletes participate in the Olympics. However, in other situations, other songs are used as de facto Scottish anthems, most notably “Flower of Scotland” and “Scotland the Brave”. There have been calls for Scotland to have its own official national anthem.

In 2004, lawyers for the devolved Scottish Parliament advised that it was within the legal competence of the Scottish Parliament to choose a national anthem for Scotland, countering the suggestion that it would be a matter reserved to the Parliament of the United Kingdom.This ruling prompted some interest in the idea, and a petition to the Scottish Parliament’s petitions committee supported by the Scottish Green Party was referred without recommendation to the Scottish Executive, but they decided to take no action, considering the issue not to be a political priority. There have been subsequent attempts to re-open the debate on a national anthem for Scotland

In June 2006 the Royal Scottish National Orchestra conducted an online opinion poll on their website, asking visitors to choose a favorite to be Scotland’s national anthem. With over 10,000 votes cast, Flower of Scotland came first with 41% of the votes, followed by Scotland the Brave with 29%.

Tune Votes (%)
Flower of Scotland 41%
Scotland the Brave 29%
Highland Cathedral 16%
A Man’s A Man for A’ That 7%
Scots Wha Hae 6%

Other songs which have been suggested include Robert Burns’ Auld Lang Syne and Hamish Henderson’s Freedom Come-All-Ye. Both of these songs, from the 18th and 20th centuries respectively, are written in Lowland Scots. Another suggestion is The Thistle o’ Scotland published in 1902. It was originally written in Scottish Gaelic but translated into Lowland Scots.
