REAL SIZE FOR FLAG

The Egyptian national anthem is a crystallization of its history. The anthem voices people's inspirations and beliefs. Egypt's current national anthem was based on an idea in the mind of one of Egypt's leaders. The first few lines of the anthem were obtained from a speech made by the great leader Mustafa Kamel in 1907. 

"O, my homeland, to you is my love and heart, 
To you are my life and my existence,
To you are my mind, tongue and my whole being,
You are everything in life, and there is no other life without you, ". 
Egypt's current anthem was written by the poet Younis al-Qadi and composed by the great artist Sayed Darwish, who died before listening it.

The Egyptian National Anthem
 
My homeland, my homeland, my hallowed land,
Only to you, is my due hearty love at command,
My homeland, my homeland, my hallowed land,
Only to you is my due hearty love at command,
Mother of the great ancient land,
My sacred wish and holy demand,
All should love, awe and cherish thee,
Gracious is thy Nile to humanity,
No evil hand can harm or do you wrong,
So long as your free sons are strong,
My homeland, my homeland, my hallowed land,
Only to you, is my due hearty love at command.
