National Anthems

I think that the four countries of the UK should have their own official national anthems, decided by a referendum in the countries.

I would argue that this would create a sense of uniqueness and nationality that will make people proud of where they came from. However it will also link us by our collective sense of Britishness. As such the main natonal anthem should be kept the same.

The new anthems should be played at sports games and other such times that call for the anthem to be sung. However when it's a collective Great Britian or UK team then 'God save the Queen' or whatever the anthem should be played.
