Djibouti National Anthem

Djibouti National Anthem
Djibouti

Lyrics
Arise with strength! For we have raised our flag,
The flag which has cost us dear
With extremes of thirst and pain.
Our flag, whose colours are the everlasting green of the earth,
The blue of the sky, and white, the colour of peace;
And in the centre the red star of blood.
Oh flag of ours, what a glorious sight!

Flag History

Once known as French Somaliland, Djibouti gained independence in 1977.
When adopted, the flag was an adaptation of the Ligue Populaire Africaine
pour L’Independance (LPAI) which led Djibouti to independence. White, green
and light blue are the colors of the LPAI and the red star symbolizes the
unity of the state. Light blue represents the Issa people and green represents
the people from Afar.
