Ghana was the first African state that chose to use traditional Pan-African colors (red, yellow, and green) on its flag. It happened in 1957, when Ghana gained independent from Great Britain.

A proclamation issued by the then State President, Nelson Mandela, on 20 April 1994 in terms of the provisions of Section 248 (1) together with Section 2 of the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa, 1993 (Act 200 of 1993), stated that the Republic of South Africa would have two national anthems. They were Nkosi Sikelel' iAfrika and The Call of South Africa (Die Stem van Suid-Afrika). In terms of Section 4 of the Constitution of South Africa, 1996 (Act 108 of 1996), and following a proclamation in the Government Gazette No. 18341 (dated 10 October 1997), a shortened, combined version of Nkosi Sikelel' iAfrika and The Call of South Africa is now the national anthem of South Africa.

It is the only neo-modal national anthem in the world, by virtue of being the only one that starts in one key and finishes in another. The lyrics employ the five most populous of South Africa's eleven official languages - isiXhosa (first stanza, first two lines), isiZulu (first stanza, last two lines), seSotho (second stanza), Afrikaans (third stanza) and English (final stanza).

  • The National Anthem was proclaimed in 1997.
  • It is a shortened, combined version of two anthems (‘Nkosi Sikelel’ iAfrika’ and ‘The Call of South Africa’/’Die Stem van Suid-Afrika’); sung between 1994 and 1997.
  • It is unique in that it is sung in five languages.
  • ’Nkosi Sikelel’ iAfrika’ was composed in 1897 by Enoch Sontonga, a Methodist mission schoolteacher.
  • The poet Samuel Mqhayi later added seven additional stanzas in isiXhosa.
  • A Sesotho version was published by Moses Mphahlele in 1942.
  • ‘Nkosi Sikelel’ iAfrika’ became a popular church hymn that was later adopted as an anthem at political meetings and was sung as an act of defiance during the apartheid years.
  • ’Die Stem van Suid-Afrika’ is a poem written by CJ Langenhoven in May 1918, with music composed in 1921 by the Reverend ML de Villiers.
  • It was first sung publicly at the official hoisting of the national flag in Cape Town on 31 May 1928.
  • It was not until 2 May 1957 that government pronounced Die Stem as the official national anthem of South Africa.
  • In 1952, the official English version, ‘The Call of South Africa’, was accepted for official use.
Anthem
  • The National Anthem should be recited with appropriate respect.
  • All should stand to attention with their hands placed at their sides while singing the National Anthem.
  • Civilians should take their hats off as a sign of respect.

Uit die diepte van ons see,
Oor ons ewige gebergtes,

Let us live and strive for freedom,
In South Africa our land.

    First stanza
    God bless our homeland Ghana
    And make our nation great and strong,
    Bold to defend forever
    The cause of Freedom and of Right;
    Fill our hearts with true humility,
    Make us cherish fearless honesty,
    And help us to resist oppressors’ ruleWith all our will and might for evermore.
    Second stanza
    Hail to thy name, O Ghana,
    To thee we make our solemn vow:
    Steadfast to build together
    A nation strong in Unity;
    With our gifts of mind and strength of arm,
    Whether night or day, in the midst of storm,
    In every need, whate’er the call may be,To serve thee, Ghana, now and evermore.
    Third stanza
    Raise high the flag of Ghana
    and one with Africa advance;
    Black star of hope and honour
    To all who thirst for liberty;
    Where the banner of Ghana freely flies,
    May the way to freedom truly lie;
    Arise, arise, O sons of Ghana land,And under God march on for evermore!
