Contains Ads

"Limba noastră" (Romanian pronunciation: [ˈlimba ˈno̯astrə] (About this soundlisten), meaning "Our language") has been the national anthem of the Republic of Moldova since 1994 (officially adopted on 22 July 1995). For a short period before that, the official anthem of the country was "Deșteaptă-te, române!", which was also (and remains today as) the national anthem of Romania. The lyrics were written by Alexei Mateevici (1888–1917) a month before his death. Mateevici contributed significantly to the national emancipation of Bessarabia. The music was composed by Alexandru Cristea (1890–1942).

Uniquely among national anthems, the focus of "Limba noastră" is language, in this case, the national one of Moldova, Romanian (also known as "Moldovan" in Moldova). It calls for the people to revive the usage of their native language. The poem does not refer to the language by name; it is only called poetically "our language".

"Limba noastră", like "Deșteaptă-te, române!", makes reference to the awakening from the sleep of death: "a people suddenly awaken from the sleep of death" and "awaken, Romanian, from the sleep of death", respectively.
