I'm posting this in reply to a request by Nyuk:

iSTiKLAL MARSi

Korkma, sönmez bu safaklarda yüzen al sancak;
Sönmeden yurdumun üstünde tüten en son ocak.
O benim milletimin yildizidir, parlayacak;
O benimdir, o benim milletimindir ancak.

Çatma, kurban olayim, çehreni ey nazli hilal!
Kahraman irkima bir gül! Ne bu siddet, bu celal?
Sana olmaz dökülen kanlarimiz sonra helal...
Hakkidir, Hakk'a tapan, milletimin istiklal!

Ben ezelden beridir hür yasadim, hür yasarim.
Hangi çilgin bana zincir vuracakmis? sasarim!
Kükremis sel gibiyim, bendimi çigner, asarim.
Yirtarim daglari, enginlere sigmam, tasarim.

Garbin afakini sarmissa çelik zirhli duvar,
Benim iman dolu gögsüm gibi serhaddim var.
Ulusun, korkma! Nasil böyle bir imani bogar,
'Medeniyet!' dedigin tek disi kalmis canavar?

Arkadas! Yurduma alçaklari ugratma, sakin.
Siper et gövdeni, dursun bu hayasizca akin.
Dogacaktir sana va'dettigi günler Hakk'in...
Kim bilir, belki yarin, belki yarindan da yakin.

Bastigin yerleri 'toprak!' diyerek geçme, tani:
Düsün altinda binlerce kefensiz yatani.
Sen SEHiD oglusun, incitme, yaziktir, Atani:
Verme, dünyalari alsan da, bu cennet vatani.

Kim bu cennet vatanin ugruna olmaz ki feda?
süheda fiskiracak topragi siksan, süheda!
Cani, canani, bütün varimi alsin da hüda,
Etmesin tek vatanimdan beni dünyada cüda.

Ruhumun senden, i?lahi, sudur ancak emeli:
Degmesin mabedimin gögsüne namahrem eli.
Bu Ezanlar-ki sahadetleri dinin temeli,
Ebedi yurdumun üstünde benim inlemeli.

O zaman vecd ile bin secde eder -varsa- tasim,
Her cerihamdan, i?lahi, bosanip kanli yasim,
Fiskirir ruh-i mücerred gibi yerden na'sim;
O zaman yükselerek arsa deger belki basim.

Dalgalan sen de safaklar gibi Ey sanli Hilal!
Olsun artik dökülen kanlarimin hepsi helal.
Ebediyen sana yok, irkima yok izmihlal:
Hakkidir, hür yasamis, bayragimin hürriyet;
Hakkidir, HAKK'a tapan, milletimin istiklal!

NOTE: this is the full version.


I've also found an English translation at http://www.shef.ac.uk/~ts/anthem.html :

Fear not, the crimson flag, waving in these dawns will never fade;
Before the last hearth that is burning in my nation vanishes.
That is my nation's star, it will shine;
That is mine, it belongs solely to my nation.

Oh coy crescent do not frown for i am ready to sacrifice myself for you!
Please smile upon my heroic nation, why that anger, why that rage?
if you frown, our blood shed for you will not be worthy,
Freedom is the right of my nation who worships God and seeks what is right!

Slightly off the subject, but one'f my fave anthems is the well known 'Eski Ordu Marsi':

Ceddin deden, neslin baban
Hep kahraman Türk Milleti
Ordularin pek çok zaman
Vermis¸tiler dünyaya san

Türk Milleti Türk Milleti
Ask ile sev milliyeti
Kahret vatan düsmanini
Çeksin o mel'un o zilleti.

In Turkiye, there is a Turkish literature class and you learn what each and every line means. Then, you can really appreciate the beauty and the power of those words;)

Yeah, the words our so great, but I think we should have a better music. The music is really bad to such great words.
I also love mehter marsi, I was thinking the other day, that's what they should do against Brazil, the whole should listen to Mehter before the game, because nothing pumps me up much as mehter. You I had a friend who did his army term in the southeastern Turkey, and he told me the squad listens to Mehter before they go out to fight the terrorists.

I translated the whole thing, for some reason it makes more sense to me now.


Fear not, the crimson flag flying in these dawns will never fade;
Before the last burning hearth in my nation should ever burn out,
It is my nations star, it will shine,
It is mine, it is my nations sign.

Oh coy crescent do not frown,
For the blood we have shed for you will be in vain.
Smile upon my heroic race, why this anger why this rage.
Freedom is the right of my nation that worships god and seeks justice.

From the beginning of time I have lived free, I will live free!
Who dare bind chains on me!
I am a roaring river overcoming barricades.
Tearing up mountains, flooding my plains.

They surround themselves with steel armor,
We have our faith as our fortress,
Fear not my people, how could they drown us,
For what they call civilization is not but a toothless monster.

Friend, never let them in your nation.
Stand firm and stop their doomed thrusts.
Dawn will fall on the day god has vowed you...
Who knows, maybe tomorrow, maybe even sooner.

Tread this nation lightly, know it!
Think of all the martyrs who lie beneath it,
You are their sons, never wound your forefathers,
Never trade up this paradise of yours

Who would not sacrifice their lives for this nation?
With every fist this soil pours with the blood of martyrdom!
Oh god, take my life and my possessions,
But never leave me without my one and only nation.

God, I have but one wish from you,
Never let their unclean hands touch this temple
The calls for prayer that signify our faith,
Should thunder across this nation forever,

Only then will my grave stone bow a thousand times with joy,
Only then will my wounds shed their bloody tears,
Only then will my spirit surge out of the ground;
Only then will my head rise and touch the heavens.

Fly in these dawns oh glorious crescent!
Be worthy of the blood we have shed for you.
Forever there will be freedom for you and my race.
For freedom is the god given right of my free flag;
For freedom is the god given right of my free people.
