"Ymnos eis tin Eleftherian" (Hymn to Liberty)

With lyrics by Dionysios Solomos and music by Nikolaos Mantzaros, Cyprus’s national anthem, “Ymnos eis tin Eleftherian,” was adopted in 1960. The anthem is originally Greece’s national anthem which has been adopted by Cyprus as its own. Instead of using Cyprus’s anthem, the Turkish community in Cyprus uses Turkey’s anthem.
