What is the national song of China

The Chinese national anthem, national anthem of China

The song the Chinese national anthem was originally called "The March of the Volunteers".

The March of the Volunteers originated after the September 18 event, 1931. It reflects the strong belief and confidence of the Chinese people in defeating Japanese invaders. The hymn was written in 1935 with lyrics by the poet Tian Han and later with music by the composer Nie Er. It was the soundtrack for the film "Sons and Daughters in the Time of the Storm" and then it became world famous and got great influence.

The decision to make the Volunteer March as the makeshift national anthem of the new China on September 27, 1949 was made during the first plenary session of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, CPPCC for short. There the song, which was written with lyrics by the poet Tian Han and later with music by the composer Nie Er, was officially accepted as the national anthem of the PRC. The March of the Volunteers is reputed to be the fanfare of the Chinese nation's war of liberation. It has been sung by Chinese people since it was written in 1935, when the nation was in great danger. It played a very important role in instilling patriotism across the nation. In 1949, the CPPCC declared the Volunteer March as the makeshift national anthem of China because it expresses the moral of the Chinese people in revolution and the idea of ‚Äč‚Äčthinking about the possibility of danger when we are at peace and security. Chairman Mao once mentioned the need for the volunteer march to continue as the national anthem of China. He said that we should never forget the shameful story of being slaves, but we should also remember the possibility of commotion from time to time when we are in peacetime.
