South Sudan Independence, Republic of South Sudan (ROSS), News

Republic of South Sudan the newest country in Africa the World & the 193rd Member of United Nations

Today Saturday 9th July is a historic and glorious Day for South Sudan as they become an Independent state. The First President of New Republic of South Sudan Salva Kiir Mayardit Celebrated with the rest of his new nation today.

After a lot of discussion and debating in the Government, the official full name for the newest independent Country is Republic of South Sudan in short ROSS, with its capital being Juba.

The South Sudan Flag is filled with symbolism, and consists of horizontal black, red and green stripes, separated by two thinner white bands. The thick stripes represent the black people, their blood and fertile land. White is for peace. The blue triangle at the flag's hoist symbolises the Nile, and the yellow star inside it the unity of the 10 states.

Within South Sudan there are several hundred languages spoken making South Sudan one of the most Multi Lingual countries in the World and now after independence the official language is English, the South Sudan national anthem has very uplifting and moving word that help to bring new hope for all South Sudan.

South Sudan National Anthem
Oh God!
We praise and glorify you
For your grace on South Sudan
Land of great abundance
Uphold us united in peace and harmony
Oh motherland!

We rise raising flag with the guiding star
And sing songs of freedom with joy
For justice, liberty and prosperity
Shall forevermore reign
Oh great patriots!

Let us stand up in silence and respect
Saluting our martyrs whose blood
Cemented our national foundation
We vow to protect our nation
Oh God, bless South Sudan!

The South Sudan Pound will begin to be introduced over the coming months.
