[A] national anthem is not a dance song. It is more like a national flag in song and music, something to be proud of, to love, to rally around. ~ The Herald

A national anthem (also state anthem, national hymn, national song, etc.) is generally a patriotic musical composition that evokes and eulogizes the history, traditions, and struggles of its people, recognized either by a nation's government as the official national song, or by convention through use by the people.
