The hymn for freedom “Li(e)bertas” is a composition for choir and orchestra written for the project Weltschal (literally “world scarf”). Symbol of this project is a very long scarf made entirely out of flags of 207 different countries, produced by volunteers from around the world.

It is symbolic of tolerance, diversity and acceptance of all the different cultures with which the balconies of the Hamburg Town Hall were decorated for the event, which was created by the Hamburg designer Sibilla Pavenstedt on 8 November 2015.
“Li(e)bertas” was performed during the launch of Weltschal, a project with the participation of the citizens of Hamburg.
