Tears come to my eyes when I remember the past.
Seeing ancient ruins awakens the body with nostalgia.
In the past, our nation was built under the lion flag.
On the day we became slaves, the lion on the flag also weakened.
We are freed from slavery again and won.
The lion is also alive and proud.
The lion in the flag of our native land reflects our heroism.
Let's protect the rights of the country
