Kurdistan National Anthem
Ey Reqîb [Oh foes who watch us]

Oh foes who watch us, the nation whose language is Kurdish is alive

It cannot be defeated by makers of weapons of any time

Let no one say the Kurds are dead, the Kurds are alive

The Kurds are alive and their flag will never fall

We are the sons of the red colour of revolution

Our history is one filled with blood

Let no one say the Kurds are dead, the Kurds are alive

The Kurds are alive and our flag will never fall

We are the sons of the Medes and Kai Khosrow

Our homeland is our faith and religion

Let no one say the Kurds are dead, the Kurds are alive

The Kurds are alive and our flag will never fall

The Kurdish youth has risen like noble warriors

To draw the crown of life with blood

Let no one say the Kurds are dead, the Kurds are alive

The Kurds are alive and our flag will never fall

The Kurdish youth are ever-ready

And always prepared to sacrifice their lives

To sacrifice their lives, to sacrifice their lives.


By the poet Dildar (pen name – also known as Yonis Reuf, 1917-1948)
