The National anthem of Cote d'Ivoire is "L'Abidjanaise" which means in English "Song of Abidjan".
Cote d'Ivoire's anthem lyrics were written by Mathieu EKRA, Joachim BONY, and Pierre Marie COTY and the music was written by Pierre Marie COTY and Pierre Michel PANGO.
Adopted 1960; Although The Nation's Capital City Moved From Abidjan To Yamoussoukro In 1983, The Anthem Still Owes Its Name To The Former Capital.

Ivoirian anthem lyrics (English translation)
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 gathered together for thy glory,
In joy will we construct thee
Proud Ivorians, the country calls us.
If we have brought back liberty peacefully,
It will be our duty to be an example
Of the hope promised to humanity,
In building, united in the new faith
The homeland of true brotherhood.
