Somali lyricsEdit


Qolobaa calankeedu, waa ceynoo, 

Qolobaa calankeedu, waa ceynoo, 

Innaga keenu waa, cirkoo kale e,

Oon caadna lahayn, ee caashaqaye. 

1. Xidigyey cadi waad na ciidamisee

Carrada kaligaa adow curadee

Cadceedda sideeda caan noqo 


2. Cishadad dhalataad calooshayadii

Cishadad dhalataad calooshayadii

Sidii culaygii cidaad marisee

Allow ha ku celin cawoy dhaha 


English translatiomEdit


Every nation has its own flag. 

Every nation has its own flag. 

Ours is like the sky without any signs of clouds

All of which we have come to love. 

1. Oh you White Star, at your service we are

Oh you White Star, at your service we are

Superior you are, in any part of our land

Be famous oh Star, like the sun 


2. On the day you arose, our hearts you have

On the day you arose, our hearts you have

Purified with pureness

O Allah, do not dim the flag, pray we in this night
