Hymni i Flamurit

Hymni i Flamurit is the national anthem of Albania. The words were written by the Albanian poet Aleksander Stavre Drenova. The hymn was first published as a poem in Liri e Shqipėrisė (Freedom of Albania[?]), an Albanian newspaper in Sofia, Bulgaria. The music of the anthem was composed by the Romanian composer Ciprian Porumbescu.

Hymni i Flamurit (In Albanian)

Rreth flamurit tė pėrbashkuar,
Me njė dėshirė dhe njė qėllim,
Tė gjithė Atij duke iu betuar,
Tė lidhim besėn pėr shpėtim.

Prej lufte veē ay largohet,
Qė ėshtė lindur tradhėtor,
Kush ėshtė burrė nuk friksohet,
Po vdes, po vdes si njė dėshmor.

Nė dorė armėt do t'i mbajmė,
Tė mbrojmė Atdheun nė ēdo vend,
Tė drejtat tona ne s'i ndajmė,
Kėtu armiqtė s'kanė vend.

Se Zoti vet e tha me gojė,
Qė kombe shuhen pėrmbi dhé,
Po Shqipėria do tė rrojė,
Pėr te, pėr te luftojmė ne.

Hymn to the Flag (English Translation)

United around the flag,
With one desire and one goal,
Let us pledge our word of honour
To fight for our salvation

Only he who is a born traitor
Averts from the struggle.
He who is brave is not daunted,
But falls - a martyr to the cause.

With arms in hand we shall remain,
To guard our fatherland round about.
Our rights we will not bequeath,
Enemies have no place here.

For the Lord Himself has said,
That nations vanish from the earth,
But Albania shall live on,
Because for her, it is for her that we fight.
