The Albanian anthem was written by the Albanian poet Asdreni (an accronym for Aleks Stavre Drenova), who was born in 1872 and died in 1947. The original title of the hymn was "Betimi mi flamur", or "Pledge to the Flag". The hymn was first published as a poem in Liri e Shqipërisë (Freedom of Albania), an Albanian newspaper in Sofia, Bulgaria, in its issue of April 21, 1912. Later that year it appeared in a volume of collected poems by Asdreni, under the title èndra e lot‘ (Dreams and Tears), which was published in Bucharest. The official anthem is two verses shorter than the original poem. The music of the anthem was composed by the Romanian composer Ciprian Porumbescu.The original text in Albanian is in rhyme and meter. Next to it is an English translation in free verse, which is adapted from a translation found in an Albanian Bulletin published in USA.
Himni i Flamurit (English: Hymn to the Flag) is the national anthem of Albania. The words were written by the Albanian poet Asdreni (Aleksandër Stavre Drenova) but are merely different from the original Romanian lyrics which Andrei Barseanu wrote for Porumbescu’s piece. The hymn was first published as a poem in Liri e Shqipërisë (in English: Freedom of Albania), an Albanian newspaper in Sofia, Bulgaria, on April 21, 1912. The original title of the poem was "Betimi mi flamur," ("Pledge to the Flag"). It was later printed in a volume of poems by Drenova titled Ëndra e lotë (in English: Dreams and tears), which was published in Bucharest.
The music of the anthem was composed by the Romanian composer Ciprian Porumbescu, originally for the song "Pe-al nostru steag e scris Unire" (or "E scris pe tricolor unire").
