National Anthem of Turkey [1921-1930]- İstiklâl Marşı [Ali Rıfat Çağatay’s composition]

August 25, 2019


Fear not; For the crimson banner that proudly ripples in this glorious dawn, shall not fade, Before the last fiery hearth that is ablaze within my homeland is extinguished. For that is the star of my people, and it will forever shine; It is mine; and solely belongs to my valiant nation. Frown not, I beseech you, oh thou coy crescent! Smile upon my heroic nation! Why the anger, why the rage? Our blood which we shed for you shall not be worthy otherwise; For freedom is the absolute right of my God-worshipping nation!
