    my view is that god save the queen should be used for occasions when it is the union e.g olympics. i also love flower of scotlnad, everytime i hear it it just makes me feel lucky to be scottish, a great motivator & nothing better than the tartan army belting it out before a game ( or when panneled in some european city ) However I hate when people shout against who & whatever else they shout between " and stood against him (against who?) proud edwards army ( ____) Iwas down in Amsterdam before the Netherlands - Scotland game & loved it. Thousands of Scots singing their heads off just for a good time with no trouble.

    Wee'l be cominn.......

    In Argentina we often use that version of the anthem in hockey matches. Our national anthem is long and it has a long musical intro, so we don't start singing until the middle of the song, and is often cut before that part starts. The harmonica version was done by a member of a popular rock band here. Maybe the players laughed because they were surprise to hear that version in another country, but I'm not really sure. Aymar is not cold ;) you shouldn't laugh during your national anthem! :p

    The worst thing I saw, was during a Davis Cup final in Australia against Spain, they started playing not the Spanish national anthem but an anthem that was played during Franco's government. It was a pity because it was played live by a guy by a trumpet,( I felt sorry for the guy, it wasn't his fault) but it angered the Spanish very much.
