Well i think that we all can agree that national anthems are made 60 percent nationalistic,it probably beacouse they were written when people didnt care about natuionalisam at all.Then they were made to make moral higher and gain faith in their homeland,but its diferently understood now i guess

Well they are National Anthems, so them being nationalistic isn't that strange...
The Dutch flag to me isn't that important. I see it as a way to indicate what country someone is from, not some sacred symbol of that country. If someone raises the flag upsidedown here, I'd tell him he made a mistake. I hear that in the US that could land you in jail. Is that true and if so, why whould it be such a crime?

The Dutch flag upsidedown doesn't look like the Serbian flag...
