Samoa national anthem lyrics English

Samoa, arise and raise your banner that is your crown!
Oh! see and behold the stars on the waving banner!
They are a sign that Samoa is able to lead.
Oh! Samoa, hold fast
Your freedom for ever!
Do not be afraid; as you are founded on God;
Our treasured precious liberty.
Samoa, arise and wave
Your banner that is your crown!

The Banner of Freedom” (Samoan: O Le Fu’a o Le Sa’olotoga o Samoa), known also as Samoa Tula’i (Samoa, Arise) is the national anthem of Samoa. Both the words (which reference the country’s flag) and the music were composed by Sauni Iiga Kuresa. The anthem was composed in response to a public competition to select a new anthem when the United Nations conferred self-government on Samoa in 1948 and was chosen from among fifteen entries. It was performed publicly for the first time on 1 June 1948 and was subsequently played at all public ceremonies attended by the High Commissioner and performed after “God Save the Queen” on official occasions. It was retained as the national anthem upon Samoa’s gaining of independence from New Zealand in 1962.
