Jamaica National Anthem Code Of Use

Question about: Code Of Use For Jamaica National Anthem

Good day sir, my question is if one breaks the protocols of the national anthem, is there a penalty for ones action, if so what are they?

Thank you for your time and patience, looking forward for your response.

Answer by Wellesley
Hey, thank you for your question!

Just for the benefit of the rest of my readers, I'd like to explain what you mean by 'code of use', I hope you don't mind :-)

The code of use, is the basic standard, or expectation that surrounds the use of the National Anthem. (See the lyrics of the Jamaica National Anthem here)

In other words, what are the conditions surrounding its use. When, how, where, etc.

Here they are below.

Code for use of the National Anthem



  • All persons should stand at attention, (meaning, heels closely together) at the playing of the National Anthem and men should remove their hats.

  • The first verse of the National Anthem should be played or sung as specifically designated on the arrival of the Governor-General or the Prime Minister.

  • The Jamaica National Anthem may be sung or played at public gatherings, and

  • The singing of the National Anthem should form part of the ceremony of raising and lowering of the flag at the beginning and end of term in schools and at Independence celebrations.


Now based on my research, there is no law that addresses any breach or break of any of these codes or guidelines.

My guess that it is one of those things that we hold in esteem as patriotic Jamaicans. I wish there were though.

Again, you can find the lyrics of the Jamaican national anthem here.
