Flag of Zimbabwe

National Anthem

   Blessed be the Land of Zimbabwe
  
      O lift high the banner, the flag of Zimbabwe
      The symbol of freedom proclaiming victory;
      We praise our heros' sacrifice,
      And vow to keep our land from foes;
      And may the Almighty protect and bless our land.
     
     O lovely Zimbabwe, so wondrously adorned
     With mountains, and rivers cascading, flowing free;
     May rain abound, and fertile fields;
     May we be fed, our labour blessed;
     And may the Almighty protect and bless our land.
     
     O God, we beseech Thee to bless our native land;
     The land of our fathers bestowed upon us all;
     From Zambezi to Limpopo
     May leaders be exemplary;
     And may the Almighty protect and bless our land.
     
Ndebele Shona
      Phakamisan iflegi yethu yeZimbabwe
      Eyazalwa yimpi yenkululeko;
      Legaz' elinengi lamaqhawe ethu
      Silivikele ezithan izonke;
      Kalibusisiwe ilizwe leZimbabwe.
     
      Khangelan' iZimbabwe yon' ihlotshiwe
      Ngezintaba lang' miful' ebukekayo,
      Izulu kaline, izilimo zande;
      Iz' sebenzi zenam', abantu basuthe;
      Kalibusisiwe ilizwe leZimbabwe.
     
      Nkosi busis' ilizwe lethu leZimbabwe
      Ilizwe labokhokho bethu thina sonke;
      Kusuk' eZambezi kusiy' eLimpopo
      Abakhokheli babe lobuqotho;
      Kalibusisiwe ilizwe leZimbabwe.
     
      Simudzai mureza wedu weZimbabwe
      Yakazvarwa nomoto wechimurenga;
      Neropa zhinji ramagamba
      Tiidzivirire kumhandu dzose;
      Ngaikomborerwe nyika yeZimbabwe.
     
      Tarisai Zimbabwe nyika yakashongedzwa
      Namakomo, nehova, zvinoyevedza
      Mvura ngainaye, minda ipe mbesa
      Vashandi vatuswe, ruzhinji rugutswe;
      Ngaikomborerwe nyika yeZimbabwe.
     
      Mwari ropafadzai nyika yeZimbabwe
      Nyika yamadzitateguru edu tose;
      Kubva Zambezi kusvika Limpopo,
      Navatungamiri vave nenduramo;
      Ngaikomborerwe nyika yeZimbabwe.
     

National Flower

GLORIOSA ROTHSCHILDIANA

GLORIOSA ROTHSCHILDIANA is a native to tropical Africa. It is known as the "flame lily" in Zimbabwe. The large, claw like flowers open yellow and red and then change to a rich claret edged with gold. Their fascination lies in the way the pendulous buds turn up in a 180 degree curve and then down again. It is a very successful cut-flower that will last two weeks. A mature tuber can give up to 25 blooms. It can grow up to 1.8 meters tall and climbs using tendrils at the ends of the leaves to hold on.
