Taiwan Republic of China National Anthem Video and Song ROC

Here is a video slide show played to the Taiwanese National Anthem. The English translation, Han Yu pin yin, and traditional Chinese characters of the Taiwanese national anthem are also displayed under the video.

Here is a video slide show with the music (no lyrics). There are some nice photos in this one.

A rock remix of the song, played to a slide show of traditional Taiwanese snacks. At the end of the song, the singer says ho da la, which is Taiwanese for gan bei, which is Chinese for bottoms up (finish your drink as fast as you can)!

Traditional Chinese Characters:

三民主義,吾黨所宗,
以建民國,以進大同。
咨爾多士,為民前鋒;
夙夜匪懈,主義是從。
矢勤矢勇,必信必忠;
一心一德,貫徹始終。

Han Yu Pin Yin:

Sānmín Zhǔyì, wú dǎng suǒ zōng,
Yǐ jiàn Mínguó, yǐ jìn Dàtóng.
Zī ěr duō shì, wèi mín qiánfēng;
Sù yè fěi xiè, Zhǔyì shì cóng.
Shǐ qín shǐ yǒng, bì xìn bì zhōng;
Yì xīn yì dé, guànchè shǐ zhōng.

English Translation:

The Rights of the People

Our aim shall be to found a free land.
World peace be our stand.
Lead on, comrades, vanguards ye are.
Hold fast your aim, by sun and star.
Be earnest and brave, your country to save.
One heart, one soul, one mind, one goal !

  2. Always remember that the people of Taiwan are also Chinese and they should do their best to find a solution to the long-standing political divide that has existed on both side of the Straits since the time of the leaders of the last century. I am an old man and I will most certainly not to see the day when the Chinese leaders on both the Mainland and the Island can accommodate each other politically, culturally and emtionally. I would hope that my children will be able to witness that great moment for me.
