The National anthem of Azerbaijan is "Azerbaijan Marsi" which means in English "March of Azerbaijan".
Azerbaijan's anthem lyrics were written by Ahmed JAVAD and the music was written by Uzeyir HAJIBEYOV.
Adopted 1992; Although Originally Written In 1919 During A Brief Period Of Independence, "Azerbaijan Marsi" Did Not Become The Official Anthem Until After The Dissolution Of The Soviet Union.

Azerbaijani anthem lyrics (English translation)
You are the country of heroes!
We will die so that you might be alive!
We will shed our blood to defend you!
Long live your three-colored banner!
Long live your three-colored banner!
Thousands of people sacrificed their lives
You're become the field of battles.
Every soldier fighting for you,
Has become a hero.
We pray for your prosperity,
We make sacrifice our lives to you
Our sincere love to you,
Comes from the bottom of our hearts.
To defend your honor,
To hoist your banner,
To defend your honor,
All the young people are ready.
Glorious motherland! Glorious motherland!
Azerbaijan! Azerbaijan!
Azerbaijan! Azerbaijan!
