European Union anthem

Ode to Joy” ( German original title: „Ode an die Freude„) is the national anthem of the European Union and the Council of Europe; both of which refer to it as the European Anthemdue to the Council’s intention that, as a semi-modern composition with a mythological flair, it does represent Europe as a whole, rather than any organisation. It is based on the final movement of Beethoven’s 9th Symphony composed in 1823, and is played on official occasions by both organisations.
