On January 30, 1920 the Government of the Democratic Republic of Azerbaijan declared a competition on National emblem of Azerbaijan and adopted a Decree to officialize on May 28 the emblem which won competition.
But it has not been officialized due to the fall of the Democratic Republic of Azerbaijan on April 28, 1920. On November 17, 1990 the Supreme Majlis of Nakchivan Autonomous Republic has declared a new bid on the project of national emblem.
On January 19, 1993 the Supreme Council of the Republic of Azerbaijan has adopted a Constitution Law on National emblem.

You are the country of heroes!
We will die so that you might be alive!
We will shed our blood to defend you!
Long live your three-coloured banner!
Thousands of people sacrificed their lives
You're become the field of battles.
Every soldier fighting for you,
Has become a hero.
We pray for your prosperity,
We make sacrifice our lives to you
Our sincere love to you,
Comes from the bottom of our hearts.
To defend your honour,
To hoist your banner,
All the young people are ready.
