Just wondering any Scots (or anyone who cares) opinion on the 'nationa' anthem of Scotland. Even though, technicaly, we aren't 'allowed' one, we really do need one for sports and to be played at parliament etc. So, pick from the poll, and please comment.

- Edit: Mainly want to know 'cos I dont like Flower O' Scotland, and when God Save the Queen is played at matches... well, lets jsut say its not taken to well...
Land of my high endeavor,
Land of the shining river,
Land of my heart forever,

"i'm gonna be 500 miles"



as if Scots would want that awful song portraying their nation.

...that I am cursed far more than I am praised."

Yes, the Scots would name their national anthem after the English national flower.

The national 'song' is called Flower of Scotland. However Scotland the brave is a far better song.

It should be "And i would walk 500 miles"

Wait.....is that what the 500 miles one is? Now THAT would be a national anthem.

But flower of Scotland is just so boring! Its just durge!!! Its really nothin compared to the Irish anthem... now theres a tune... something i think scotland the brav is more akin to, much more lively and uptempo to get the troops ready!

and, btw, a really didnt expect anyone to click God Save the Queen, a was just being diplomatic... musta been a non-Scot who voted that... (jk, dont really hate the English/Auld Queeny..... much)

God Save the Queen is an absolutely dreadful anthem. I'm ashamed it's used to represent my country.

Is that all our country has to shout about? I mean...saving our Queen? I don't give a **** about the Royals to be honest, I'm fed up of the media telling me how superior they are to us normal folk.

Until we actually tell Scotland to fuck off and try and survive without us () then they should have to have the same national anthem as us, so God Shave The Queen.



P.S. I don't want that as our national anthem either

You shouldn't bottle up prejudice, it's not healthy...

I hope the pr*cks who voted God Save the Queen were some mild-mannered Englishmen


Otherwise you aren't a true Scot at all and should be ashamed of yourself

Flower O' Scotland

It's just so amazing to be in a large stadium, Hampden or Murrayfield with that being played either on PA or by an artist and the whole 50-60000 singing along.
#26
In a few years, by the looks of things we're gonna be independent. I think it'll be Flower O' Scotland.

Btw, there sure a lot of Scottish guys on here!

"we aren't 'allowed' one, we really do need one for sports and to be played at parliament etc. So, pick from the poll, and please comment."

The both of you should pay closer attention to the details of the first post :p No one is saying it will replace the british national anthem. However, it would be retarded for one to sing, "God save the queen", at football matches and unsuitable for the entirely Scottish pseudo-parliament. (not me personally... I don't go to football matches nor do I care for the "parliament")

Envious of arrogant pricks from a country most others dislike or despise? . Please dont ask for the list ive not got time.


I think many of you old firm fans would rather sing the sash or the fields of athenry. WHAT THE FUC.K is that all about where most old firm players dont sing the anthem at scotland games. GTFYC's
