This article presents the comparative analysis of the texts of the national anthems of the world states, considered as a political science phenomenon. The historical narrative of national anthems is directly examined. The characteristic is given to various types of reference to history through the format of a hymn. The schemes of the historical representation of a number of hymns with the most detailed presentation of the past are being reconstructed. Special analysis is made which discloses the theme of the unity of the peoples of the country with the Russian people in the hymns of the Soviet republics, experience of integration building through the implementation of historical politics being reflected. Particular attention is paid to the issue of historical conflicts, the image of the historical enemy in the national anthems.
