Anthem History

The lyrics for Azerbaijan's national anthem were written in 1919 by Ahmad Javad, a poet who was executed in 1937 for being a "counter-revolutionary". The music was written by composer Uzeyir Hajibeyov. When Azerbaijan regained independence in 1991, it looked back to this earlier period of independence and readopted the same flag and national anthem.

Anthem Lyrics English

Azerbaijan! Azerbaijan!

Cherished land of valiant sons,

We are ready to give our heart and life for you.

All of us can give our blood for you.

Live happily with your three-colored banner.

Live happily with your three-colored banner.

Thousands of souls were sacrificed for you.

Your chest became a battlefield.

Soldiers who deprived themselves of their lives,

Each of them became a hero.

May you become a flourishing garden.

We are ready to give our heart and soul for you.

A thousand and one endearments are in my heart.

And uphold your honor.

To raise your banner

And uphold your honor,

All the youth are eager.

Cherished land, Cherished land.

Azerbaijan! Azerbaijan!

Azerbaijan! Azerbaijan!
