ANTHEM LYRICS – ENGLISH TRANSLATION
Heaven protects our King
And gives him happiness and glory
To reign over our souls and our destinies,
The one being, heir of the Sovereign builders,
Guiding the proud old Kingdom.

Temples are asleep in the forest,
Remembering the splendour of Moha Nokor.
Like a rock the Khamer race is eternal.
Let us trust in the fate of Campuchea,
The empire which challenges the ages.

Songs rise up from the pagodas
To the glory of holy buddhistic faith.
Let us be faithful to our ancestors’ belief.
Thus heaven will lavish its bounty
Towards the ancient Khmer country, the Moha Nokor.

Flag History

The Cambodian flag used today is the same as that established in 1948, although since then five other designs have been used. These have almost all used the temple of Angkor Wat in one form or another. This famous temple site, dates from the 12th century and was built by the Mahidharapura monarchs.
