At the center is the Humo bird with wings spread – the symbol of happiness and freedom. Our great ancestor Alisher Navoi called the Humo the greatest living creature.

The sheaf of wheat and the blossoming cotton symbolize the richness of our sunny land, famous around the world. They are tied by a strip that is 3-colored, similar to the flag, representing the solidarity of the people living here.

STATE ANTHEM OF THE REPUBLIC OF UZBEKISTAN

A Law "On the State Anthem of the Republic of Uzbekistan" was adopted on December 10, 1992. The country's national anthem symbolizes its state sovereignty.
For two years, many poets and composers took part in the creation of the national anthem. The joint work of Abdulla Aripov, the Peoples Poet of Uzbekistan, and Mutal Burkhanov, the Peoples Artist of Uzbekistan, was voted the best by the session of the Oliy Majlis (Parliament) of the Republic of Uzbekistan on December 10, 1992.
The creators of the anthem said that it should sound solemn, embodying and glorifying the people. Therefore, the melodies and rhythms from the imperishable legacy of the Shashmaqom musical art of the East was used in the anthem.

My country, sunny and free, salvation to your people
You are a warmhearted companion to the friends
Flourish eternally with knowledge and inventions,
May your fame shine as long as the world exists!

These golden valleys-dear Uzbekistan,
Manly spirit of ancestors is companion to you!
When the great power of people became exuberant
You are the country that amazes the world!

Belief of generous Uzbek does not die out,
Free, young children are a strong wing for you!
The torch of independence, guardian of peace,
Just motherland be eternally prosperous!


Refrain:
These golden valleys-dear Uzbekistan,
Manly spirit of ancestors is companion to you!
When the great power of people became exuberant
You are the country that amazes the world!
