The National anthem of Fiji is "God Bless Fiji".
Fiji's anthem lyrics were written by Michael Francis Alexander PRESCOTT and the music was written by C. Austin MILES (adapted by Michael Francis Alexander PRESCOTT).
Adopted 1970; The Anthem Is Known In Fijian As "Meda Dau Doka" (Let Us Show Pride); Adapted From The Hymn, "Dwelling In Beulah Land," The Anthem's English Lyrics Are Generally Sung, Although They Differ In Meaning From The Official Fijian Lyrics.

As we stand united under noble banner blue
