"Naprej zastava slave", ( ) is a poem in Slovene language, which was used as the Slovenianmarker national anthem between 1918 and 1990.

It was written by Simon Jenko and put into music by Davorin Jenko on 16 May 1860.

When Slovenia became part of the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats, and Slovenesmarker (Yugoslavia), the poem was included in the Yugoslav national anthem, in a medley including the Serbianmarker anthem Bože pravde and the Croatianmarker Lijepa naša domovino. With the establishment of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslaviamarker in 1945, the royal Yugoslav anthem was replaced by Hej Slovani. Naprej zastava slave continued to be used as the anthem of the Socialist Republic of Slovenia. In 1990, the official name of the state was changed to Republic of Slovenia and Zdravljica replaced Naprej, zastava Slave as the national anthem . Naprej zastava slave remains the official anthem of the Slovenian military.

Davorin Jenko, the author of the song's melody, also composed the Serb anthem Bože pravde (God of Justice).

Lyrics

In Slovene

Naprej zastava Slave

Naprej zastava Slave,

na boj junaška kri

za blagor očetnjave

naj puška govori!

Z orožjem in desnico,

nesimo vragu grom,

zapisat v kri pravico,

ki terja jo naš dom.

Naprej zastava Slave,

na boj junaška kri,

za blagor očetnjave

naj puška govori!

Draga mati je prosila,

roke okol vrata vila,

je plakala moja mila,

tu ostani ljubi moj!

Zbogom mati, ljuba zdrava,

mati mi je očetnjava,

ljuba moja čast in slava,

hajdmo, hajdmo, zanjo v boj!

Naprej zastava Slave,

na boj junaška kri,

za blagor očetnjave

naj puška govori!

Naprej! Naprej!





In English

Forward, Flag of Glory

Forward!, flag of glory,

To battle, heroic blood!

For the benefice of the fatherland

Let the rifle speak!

With weapon and right hand

Let's bring thunder to the devil

Let's write in blood the justice

Owed to our home.

Forward!, flag of glory,

To battle, heroic blood!

For the benefice of the fatherland

Let the rifle speak!

My dear mother begged,

hands clutched 'round my neck,

my dearest one she wept,

remain here, my beloved!

Farewell mother, hale and loved

the Fatherland is my Mother

honour and glory are my beloved,

Let's go! Let's go! to battle for her!

Forward!, flag of glory,

To battle, heroic blood!

For the benefice of the fatherland

Let the rifle speak!

Forward! Forward!
