How Turkey Became a Nation
Mustafa Kemal Ataturk
A line from the national anthem
Korkma, sönmez bu şafaklarda yüzen al sancak;
Sönmeden yurdumun üstünde tüten en son ocak. Turkish lyrics
Fear not; For the crimson banner that proudly ripples in this glorious dawn, shall not fade, Before the last fiery hearth that is ablaze within my homeland is extinguished.
The nation's not fading or going anywhere. The Turkish flag will fly until the last house is destroyed.
