AFRICAN UNION ANTHEM

The AUF has filed proposals for a new flag and and anthem for the African Union. The flag we filed with the Cultural Department of AU Commission is the Maure. The anthem is "Lift Every Voice". The decision will likely be made in June 2004.

Below is the Old Anthem of Organization of African Unity

Let us all unite and celebrate
The victories for our liberation
Let us dedicate ourselves to rise together
To defend our liberty and unity

O sons and daughters of Africa
flesh of the sun and flesh of the sky
Let us make Africa the tree of life

Let all of us unite and work tohgether
To uphold our rights and fight for the cause of freedom
Let us dedicate ourselves to work together
To build up strength in unity and peace

O sons and daughters of Africa
Flesh of the Sun and flesh of the Sky
Let us make Africa the tree of life

Let all of us unite and toil together
To give the best we have to Africa
The cradle of mankind and fount of culture
Our pride and hope at break of dawn

O sons and daughters of Africa
Flesh of the Sun and flesh of the Sky
Let us make Africa the tree of life
