Two national anthems

Ciprian Porumbescu (1853 – 1883) was an Romanian composer, among the most celebrated of his time. He is known also to be the only that composed the national anthems of two countries.

His composition Pe-al nostru steag e scris "Unire" (On our flag is written "Union") was adopted in 1912 as national anthem of Albania, as Himni i Flamurit (Hymn to the Flag).

Multumim pentru aceste informatii; nu stiam ca acesta este imnul Albaniei. Mi se pare ca si imnul statului Israel este inspirat dintr-o melodie romaneasca.
