A map of the first (collectively innuendo-laden) word(s) of countries’ national anthems from the @europemaps Insta.

NB: contains all manner of debatable translations and fact-bait, as you’ll see from comments.

    I am sorry but I had to laugh. For some reason I read a bit of it a s a circular sentence:
    Yes, you! Oh My God, NOT YET, Lithuania!

    I started to wonder what Lithuania was going to do.

    Technically the first word of ours is ‘We’ in the official Irish (1919) version, even though it was first written in English (1907) where the first word is ‘Soldiers’.
    Quality map all the same.

      The original English version, from which the Irish version came, is ‘Soldiers are we’
