Swiss to launch national anthem competition in 2014

Switzerland considers its national anthem too old-fashioned, so a new one will be chosen through a competition.
The priority is to have a new text, but contestants will also be free to compose a new tune, project leader Lukas Niederberger told BBC News.The current text dates back to 1841 and includes references to God, prayer, mountains and sunshine.
