“Scotland the Brave” is a Scottish patriotic song. It was one of several songs considered an unofficial national anthem of Scotland.
“Scotland the Brave” is also the authorised pipe band march of The British Columbia Dragoons of the Canadian Forces and also is played during the Pass in Review at Friday parades at The Citadel and the Virginia Military Institute. In 2006, it was adopted as the regimental quick march of the Royal Regiment of Scotland. In the 1982, 1986, and in the 1990 FIFA World Cup, the Scottish national team used it as its anthem prior to using “Flower of Scotland”.
“Scotland the Brave” is a popular song for pipe bands to play in American parades.
