People have talked of changing it but I think we are stuck with "God Save the Queen"! "Jerusalem" is sort of a national song ('And did those feet in ancient time Walk upon England's mountains green ...') and so is "Rule Britannia" (except we no longer 'rule the waves').

I am from India. our National song Vande Mataram, composed by Bankim Chandra Chatterji, was a source of inspiration to the people in their struggle for freedom. It has an equal status with Jan Gan Mana - Our National Anthem. The first political occasion when it was sung was the 1896 session If the Indian National Congress .

My country's national song it's "Inno di Mameli", in english "Mameli's anthem" , I think... It's the national anthem of Italy.The original name was " Canto degli italiani", in english "Italians song" and Goffredo Mameli , a patriot of our Risorgimento, wrote it in 1847. But Italy choosed to get this song like national anthem only in 1946, and it officially became our anthem straight in 2005.
