Azərbaycan Marşı (March of Azerbaijan) is the national anthem of Azerbaijan. The music was composed by the Azeri composer Uzeyir Hajibeyov, while the lyrics are written by Ahmed Javad. It was first officially adopted in 1920 by the government of the Azerbaijan Democractic Republic (relinquished in 1922). In 1993, the Azeri government readopted the anthem.

The anthem was declared to be "the sacred symbol of the Azerbaijan state, its independence and unity".







HistoryEdit

This section contains information from Wikipedia.

In 1919, during the formation of the Azerbaijan Democratic Republic, the new government announced it was accepting submissions from the public for a national anthem, coat of arms and state seal. A prize of 15,000 rubles would be awarded to the citizen who submitted the winning anthem.

Azerbaijani composer Uzeyir Hajibeyov wrote two marches. In 1919, this work received the first award announced by the government of the Azerbaijan Democratic Republic. The second march was the "March of Azerbaijan." According to Turkish musicologist Etem Üngör, "In those years, when Azerbaijan had not yet lost its independence, the march was chanted by military schools before lessons."

In 1922, the "Azerbaijan March" was replaced by the Soviet anthem, The Internationale. In 1944, during World War II, the new Soviet national anthem replaced The Internationale and an additional Anthem of the Azerbaijan Soviet Socialist Republic was installed.

In 1989, following several years of changes brought by perestroika, composer Aydin Azimov arranged a modern recording of the "Azerbaijan March" by a full symphony and chorus. That fall, the "Azerbaijan March" was broadcast on television and radios in Azerbaijan, 70 years after it was introduced.

Readoption of the anthemEdit

In 1992, after the breakup of the Soviet Union, the leaders of the independent Azerbaijani government proposed that the original anthem should be restored as the anthem of Azerbaijan. The Milli Mejlis (National Assembly) signed it into law in 1993.

Azerbaijani lyricsEdit

In Latin scriptEdit

Azərbaycan! Azərbaycan!
Ey qəhrəman övladın şanlı Vətəni!
Səndən ötrü can verməyə cümlə hazırız!
Səndən ötrü qan tökməyə cümlə qadiriz!
Üçrəngli bayrağınla məsud yaşa!
Üçrəngli bayrağınla məsud yaşa!

Minlərlə can qurban oldu,
Sinən hərbə meydan oldu!
Hüququndan keçən əsgər,
Hərə bir qəhrəman oldu!

Sən olasan gülüstan,
Sənə hər an can qurban!
Sənə min bir məhəbbət
Sinəmdə tutmuş məkan!

Namusunu hifz etməyə,
Bayrağını yüksəltməyə
Namusunu hifz etməyə,
Cümlə gənclər müştaqdır!
Şanlı Vətən! Şanlı Vətən!
Azərbaycan! Azərbaycan!
Azərbaycan! Azərbaycan!
