Comoros National Anthem

Comoros National Anthem
The Union of the Great Islands (Udzima wa ya Masiwa)

Lyrics
The flag is flying,
Announcing complete independence;
The nation rises up
Because of the faith we have
In this our Comoria.

Let us always have devotion
To love our Great Islands.
We Comorians are of one blood,
We Comorians are of one faith.

On these Islands we were born,
These Islands brought us up.
May God always help us;
Let us always have the firm resolve
To love our fatherland,
Love our religion and the world.

The flag is flying.
From the Sixth of July
The Nation rises up;
Our Islands are lined up.
Maori and Anzuan, Moheli and Comore,
Let us always have devotion
To love our Great Islands.

Flag History

The present flag is based on one adopted at independence, which included
stars for the four main islands (including Mayotte) and a crescent to symbolize
Islam. The original flag was mainly red, to underline the socialist aspirations
of the country. This was dropped in 1978 in favor of a green flag, with the
crescent and stars in white. Comoros adopted a new name, constitution and flag
in 2002. On this flag the four stars, the crescent moon, and the green of Islam
have been moved into a triangle. Each of the stripes (yellow, white, red and blue)
represent one of the four islands.
