***WERE SO GALLANTLY STREAMING*** is missing from the video. It accidently was removed during editing. Here is the written explanation:
After /and the ramparts we watched/ you just transition into a 5 hand shape. 3 times, starting with your right hand you go from you belly button up to your chest (right, left, right) and then flag wave. The palm orientation is left/down and your thumb is what is nearly touching your body when you do it.

I am a former teaching assistant at the University of Florida. This video was made to have a standing lesson for how to sign the national anthem like we do at commencement ceremonies and sporting events at UF. I hope students enjoy!

Here is the gloss for the national anthem:

Oh, Say can you see by the dawns early light
(R) INFORM-ME CAN YOU-ALL SEE SUNRISE

What so proudly we hailed at the twilights last gleaming
(R) IT PROUD WE HONOR PAST SUNSET

Whose broad stripes and bright stars
(R) IT CL: C (MODIFIED 1 FINGER, DRAW STRIPES)++ (2) STAR (2) ++BRIGHT

Through the perilous fight
HAPPEN DANGER(3) WAR++ (L-R-L)




Ore the ramparts we watched
RAMPART (3) WATCH (over rampart 3X)

Were so gallantly streaming
FANCY++ (3X) FLAG-WAVE

And the rockets red glare
RED FIRE-ROCKET+++++

The bombs bursting
BOMB BURST+++ (filter down R-L)

Gave proof through the night
(R) PROVE++ HAPPEN ALL-NIGHT

That our flag was still there
OUR CONTINUE FLAG-WAVE

O say does that star spangled banner yet wave
(R) INFORM-ME TRUE STAR (3) CL:C+++ (2) CONTINUE WAVE

Oer the land of the free
OVER LAND BELONG FREE PEOPLE

And the home of the brave
HOME BELONG YOU-ALL PATRIOTIC
