Sweden celebrates its National Day (or Swedish Flag Day) today, national holiday in honour of King Gustav Vasa elected in 1523 that marked independence and foundation of modern Sweden.
Sure it's supported by many artists participating in all sorts of public events and tv-shows singing national anthem of Sweden "Du gamla, Du fria" (that is usually performed at different sports events as well), it was covered in all possible genres and by many names you should know - from Basshunter to Andra Generationen, from Amy Diamond to Sarah Dawn Finer. But probably these three performances we like the most - by Timoteij, Kevin Borg and Carola, sure Carola takes main prize, incredibly touching and powerful. Grattis Sverige!
