***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
