I like the German one, maybe too familiar with Russian to evaluate it.

France, anyone? The Russian-Soviet tune is quite pompous (its Soviet predecessor was much better, the famous Internationale) - in the 70's at my school we had to learn the anthems of the neighbouring countries (plus the US and British ones, just to be neutral, I guess) and I still remember some of the Finnish lyrics to it: "sun luonut on kansojen yhteinen tahto", yeah, right...

edit: the Finnish text in English is approximately "You were created by the common will of nations".

Du gamla du fria is the Swedish anthem. He was joking about Ålanders being Swedes.

So they have an anthem? Why dont they become independet then? If they are proud of themselfs, then there should not be a problem even on their side. I dont get it, why we haveto keep them as part of ours, those complaining swedish speaking Ålanders would be happier Independent.

The majority of Ålanders want to be governed by Finland. They do have a party that wants them to become independent though.

Had no idea they got an own national athem, btw.

Interesting talk about Aland politics, but nobody said if you like the song or not

I love it! (don't understand a word though)

It's alright I guess. The anthem is mostly a tribute to their nature/landscape and about being "free". Last little bit is also about how proud they are over the Swedish language. I guess that's what the Finns reacted to..

I bet you're one of us who think Sibelius Finlandia Hymn would be better Anthem for us. I dont blame you, but the anthem we have now is not that bad. Its actually pretty good, but its just not epic enough for us.
