FLOWER OF SCOTLAND, INNO NON UFFICIALE DELLA SCOZIA


Flower of Scotland è uno degli inni non ufficiali della Scozia e commemora la vittoriosa battaglia di Bannockburn quando i scozzesi di Robert Bruce sconfissero gli inglesi di Edoardo II d'Inghilterra. In fondo, troverete l'inno cantato durante una partita di rugby nel 1990 tra Scozia ed Inghilterra e, ha detta di molti, è stata la migliore e la più solenne rappresentazione dell'inno.

O Flower of Scotland,
When will we see
Your like again
That fought and died for
Your wee bit hill and glen.
And stood against him,
Proud Edward's army,
And sent him homeward
To think again.
The hills are bare now,
And autumn leaves
Lie thick and still
O'er land that is lost now,
Which those so dearly held
That stood against him,
Proud Edward's army
And sent him homeward
To think again.
Those days are past now
And in the past
They must remain
But we can still rise now
And be the nation again!
That stood against him
Proud Edward's army
And sent him homeward
To think again.
O Flower of Scotland,
When will we see
Your like again
That fought and died for
Your wee bit hill and glen.
And stood against him,
Proud Edward's army,
And sent him homeward
To think again. »
