Sudan Profile

Sudan National Anthem
National Anthem in Arabic
Translation in English

Nahnu Djundullah Djundulwatan.
In Da A Da Il Fida Lam Nakhun.
Natahaddal Maut Endalmihan.
Nashta Ril Madjd Bi Aghlathaman.
Hathihil Ard Lana! Falyaish Sudanuna,
Alaman Bayn Al Umam.
Ya Benissudan, Hatharamzukum;
Yah Miluleb, Wa Yahmi Ardakum.

We are the army of God and of our land,
We shall never fail when called to sacrifice.
Whether braving death, hardship or pain,
We give our lives as the price of glory.
May this Our land, Sudan, live long,
Showing all nations the way.
Sons of the Sudan, summoned now to serve,
Shoulder the task of preserving our country.

Sudan Flag

The meanings of the colours of the flag are as follows:

  • The red colour symbolizes the struggle and martyrs.
  • The white colour symbolizes peace, Islam and optimism.
  • The black colour symbolizes the Mahdist Revolution that founded the modern Sudan and adopted the black flag as its symbol.
  • The green colour symbolizes abundance, welfare and agriculture.

 

Emblem of Sudan

The emblem of the Republic of the Sudan is the Secretary Bird in a state of stillness with its wings stretched. There is a frame linking the wings in which the words "Victory is for Us" are written. There is also an arched frame at the base in which the words "The Republic of the Sudan" are written.
The emblem was first adopted during the government of former President Jaffar Mohammed Nimeiri (1969-1985), replacing the previous emblem, which was the rhinoceros. The Secretary Bird is known for its might, ability to fly at great heights and powerful sight. It can run for long distances

Its neighbors are Chad and the Central African Republic on the west, Egypt and Libya on the north, Ethiopia and Eritrea on the east, and Kenya, Uganda, and Democratic Republic of the Congo on the south.
