Why don't other countries put their hands over their heart during their national anthems?

Me and my buds bet on sports only thing on was Australian rugby and both teams lined up to listen to anthem national anthem and none of them cover their hand over their chests.
Is facing the flag and covering your heart with your right hand soley and American thing we do?

  • It's mostly a thing that overtly patriotic people do. Since a lot of Americans are overtly patriotic... you get my point.
