COTE D’IVOIRE NATIONAL ANTHEM

August 6, 2020

We salute you,

O land of hope,

Country of hospitality;

Thy full gallant legions

Have restored thy dignity. 

Beloved Ivory Coast, thy sons,

Proud builders of thy greatness,

All not mustered together for thy glory,

In joy will we construct thee. 

Proud citizens of the Ivory Coast,

the country call us.

If we have brought back liberty peacefully,

It will be our duty to be an example 

Of the hope promised to humanity,

Forging unitedly in new faith

The Fatherland of true brotherhood.


Salut Ô terre d’espérance;

Pays de l’hospitalité.

Tes légions remplies de vaillance

Ont relevé ta dignité. 

Tes fils, chère Côte d’Ivoire,

Fiers artisans de ta grandeur,

Tous rassemblés pour ta gloire

Te bâtiront dans le bonheur. 

Fiers Ivoiriens, le pays nous appelle.

Si nous avons dans la paix ramené la liberté,

Notre devoir sera d’être un modèle 

De l’espérance promise à l’humanité,

En forgeant, unie dans la foi nouvelle,

La patrie de la vraie fraternité.
