Subject: RE: Flower of Scotland, official?
Fiona,

"Freedom come all ye", great song though it is, couldn't qualify to be a national anthem because it's too internationalist and not patriotic for Scotland in the slightest, although it was written by a Scot in (an extremely 'artificial'? form of) Scots. I imagine (hope?) that Hamish Henderson himself would have been appalled at the suggestion that it should be a Scottish national anthem!
