Anthem Lyrics English

Rome immortal, city of martyrs and saints,

Immortal Rome, accept our praises.

Glory in the heavens to God our Lord

And peace to the men who love Christ!

To you we come, angelic Pastor,

In you we see the gentle redeemer.

You are the holy heir of our Faith,

You are the comfort and the refuge of those

who believe and fight

Force and terror will not prevail,

But truth and love will reign<>

PONTIFICIAL MARCH

Hail, O Rome

Eternal abode of memories;

A thousand pslams and a thousand altars

 Sing your praises

CHORUS:

City of the Apostles,

Mother and guide of the elect,

Light of the nations

And hope of the world!

Hail, O Rome

Your light will never fade;

The splendour of your beauty

Disperses hatred and shame.

Holy See Flag

Holy See Flag

Flag History A flag of this design was introduced as the merchant flag of the Pontifical State at the beginning of the 19th century. The colors are those of the keys of St. Peter, which are the keys to the kingdom of heaven and a symbol of papal authority. The crossed keys with the papal tiara have been the emblem of the papal state since the 14th century. Although the official proportions are 1:1, the actual flag flown in the Vatican City are 2:3.
Flag Date of Adoption 8 June 1929
