In my time as a Member of the Scottish Youth Parliament (MSYP) I discussed this issue with many young people who believed that ‘Flower of Scotland’ should be officially recognised as Scotland’s national anthem. Also, I have spoken to friends and family members who already think that ‘Flower of Scotland’ is Scotland’s official national anthem, just like many others across Scotland.

I have also looked into the history of the Scottish Parliament’s role in recognising a national anthem for Scotland and realise that there has been much demand for Scotland to have an officially recognised national anthem for many years now.

This year’s Commonwealth Games in Glasgow showed why ‘Flower of Scotland’ should be recognised as Scotland’s national anthem as the incredible passion of the athletes and spectators singing the song was unbelievable. Also, ‘Flower of Scotland’ is performed with passion before and during football and rugby union matches at Hampden and Murrayfield respectively.

I have also looked at many opinions polls regarding an official national anthem for Scotland and these show that ‘Flower of Scotland’ is by far the most popular choice and now is the time to officially recognise it as Scotland’s national anthem.
