National anthems by adoption year per country.
The visualisation shows the countries that will take part in the Tokyo Olympics. Participating countries are ordered chronologically over the centuries, based on the year in which they adopted the national anthem.

The data visualisation was realised for the column Visual Data and published on the issue #477 of «La Lettura», the cultural supplement of the Italian newspaper «Corriere della Sera».
