Anthem of the Karelo-Finnish Soviet Socialist Republic

The State Anthem of the Karelo-Finnish SSR was the national anthem of Karelia (now a federal subject of Russia) when it was a republic of the Soviet Union and known as the Karelo-Finnish SSR.

Background

In 1945, the government of the Karelo-Finnish SSR held a competition for the creation of a state anthem. The winning entry (written by Armas Äikiä and composed by Karl Rautio) was adopted as the SSR's official anthem in the early 1950s until 1956 when it was re-absorbed into the Russian SFSR. It and the Estonian SSR anthem were the only ones not to mention the Russian people.

Finnish lyrics

:Oma Karjalais-suomalaiskansamme maa,:Vapaa Pohjolan Neuvostojen tasavalta.:Kotimetsäimme kauneus öin kajastaa:Revontultemme taivaalta leimuavalta.

::Neuvostoliitto on voittamaton,::Se kansamme suur-isänmaa ijät on.::Sen Tienä on Kansojen Kunniantie,::Se Karjalan Kansankin voittoihin vie.

:Isänmaa Kalevan, kotimaa runojen,:Jota Leninin Stalinin lippu johtaa.:Yli kansamme uutteran onnellisen :Valo kansojen veljeystähdestä hohtaa.

::Neuvostoliitto on voittamaton,::Se kansamme suur-isänmaa ijät on.::Sen Tienä on Kansojen Kunniantie,::Se Karjalan Kansankin voittoihin vie.

:Kotimaamme loi uudeksi kansamme työ,:Tätä maata me puollamme kuin isät ammoin.:Sotasuksemme suihkavat kalpamme lyö.:Asemahdilla suojaamme Neuvosto-Sammon.

English translation

:Native land of the Karelian-Finnish peoples,:Free northern republic of Soviets!:Our forests' beauty by night is reflected :On sky, blazing because of aurora borealis.

::The Soviet Union is invincible,::Karelia is its part for ever!::Our happiness is to follow our great fatherland::To glorious victories!

:Kaleva's fatherland, runes’ native land,:Is led now by the banner of Lenin and Stalin.:The light of the people’s brotherhood star is shining:Over our industrious happy people!

::The Soviet Union is invincible,::Karelia is its part for ever!::Our happiness is to follow our great fatherland::To glorious victories!

:Our people's labor revived our homeland,:We defend this land as our fathers used to do!:Our skies rustle, our sword defeats.:With strength of our arms we'll save the Soviet Sampo!

in Russian:

:Родная страна нашего Карело-Финского народа,:Свободная Северная Советская республика.:Наших родных лесов красота ночами отражается:На нашем Северном сиянии, пылающем на небе.

:Советский Союз непобедим,:Это великого предка нашего народа земля вечная.:Путь eго - путь чести народов,:Он и народ Карелии приведет к победам.

:Отечество Калевы, родина рун,:Которую Ленина-Сталина знамя ведет.:Над нашим народом трудолюбивым счастливым:свет народов братства звезды cияет.

:Советский Союз непобедим,:Это великого предка нашего народа земля вечная.:Путь eго - путь чести народов,:Он и народ Карелии приведет к победам.

:Нашу родину вновь создал труд нашего народа,:Эту страну мы защищаем как отцы в давние времена.:Наши военные лыжи мчатся, наш меч разит:Оружием мы отстоим Советское Сампо.

:Советский Союз непобедим,:Это великого предка нашего народа земля вечная.:Путь eго - путь чести народов,:Он и народ Карелии приведет к победам.
