It's my time to be proud :smitten:



The Kingdom of Romania emerged when the principalities of Moldava and Wallachia were united under Prince Alexandru Ioan Cuza in 1859 under the Hohenzollern monarchy. The independence from the Ottoman Empire was declared on May 9, 1877,[B]and was internationally recognized the following year. At the end of the First World War, Transylvania, Bukovina and Bessarabia united with the Kingdom of Romania. Greater Romania emerged into an era of progression and prosperity that would continue until World War II. By the end of the War, many north-eastern areas of Romania's territories were occupied by the Soviet Union, and Romania became a socialist republic and member of the Warsaw Pact.

A part of the Romanian anthem TRANSLATED in english:
Desteapta-te romane!

Awaken thee, Romanian, shake off thy deadly slumber
The scourge of inauspicious barbarian tyrannies
And now or never to a bright horizon clamber
That shall to shame put all your enemies.

It's now or never to the world we readily proclaim
In our veins throbs Roman blood
And in our hearts for ever we glorify a name
Resounding of battle, the name of gallant Trajan.

...

Do look, imperial shadows,MIHAI, STEFAN, Corvine
At the Romanian nation, your mighty progeny
With arms like steel and hearts of fire impetuous
It's either free or dead, that's what they all decree
...
From: Lyrics Translate - Multilingual translation community. Lyrics translations from-to English, Greek, Spanish, Turkish, Romanian, Arabic and others.
About the anthem:
The lyrics were composed by Andrei Mureşanu. It was written and published during the 1848 revolution, initially with the name "Un răsunet" ("An echo")

:) Tomorrow is a really important day dor Romanians :)
It's our time to be proud of ... ourselfs?
(okhay, I know, THIS SOUNDS WEIRD :2funny:)

That does sound very much like our Canada Day and the USA's Independence Day.
Those are days we are very proud to be living where we are. A Day to honor our country and all the things that make us unique.
