South Africa National Anthem

South Africa National Anthem
First segment (Nkosi Sikelel iAfrika)

Lyrics
God bless Africa
Raise high Her glory
Hear our Prayers
God bless us, her children

God we ask You to protect our nation
Intervene and end all conflicts
Protect us, protect our nation, our nation, South Africa – South Africa

Ringing out from our blue heavens,
From our deep seas breaking round,
Over everlasting mountains,
Where the echoing crags resound

Sounds the call to come together,
And united we shall stand,
Let us live and strive for freedom,
In South Africa our land.

Flag History

Adopted in 1994, the overall flag design of South Africa conveys convergence and unification.
Yellow, black, and green are taken from the African National Congress flag while red, white
and blue were derived from the colors of the Boer Republic. The Y represents the combination
of old traditions with the new.
