You have an Avatar of the Royal Air Force. Either take it off, or start liking GSTQ.
Frankly, It depends on who/what is paying/singing God save the queen.

I'm curious what you think of it. The Wilhelmus has 15 strophes, but most people in the Netherlands only know the first one. The first one is also the only one that is mostly sung at public national events, followed by the sixth (I'm not sure why...). I like it. The only time I sing it I believe is when I watch Nationale Dodenherdenking (Remembrance of the Dead) on May 4 each year on TV: Remembrance of the Dead, when the dead of all wars and peacekeeping missions since World War II are remembered. The queen and her entourage are present on Dam Square in the capital, together with thousands of citizens. After two minutes of silence and the wreath laying, the Wilhelmus is sung. It does actually give me a feeling of solidarity, I like the music.
