'Mojot Svet' ('My World') lyrics

Naj, na, naj, na, na, na, naj, na
Naj, na, naj, na, na, na, naj, na
Naj, na, naj, na, na, na, naj, na
Naj, na, naj, na, na, na, naj.

Nocva so senki pak zboruvam
Moram od sebe da pobegnam
Tri angeli me cuvaat
Odam po vistinski pat.

Mojot svet se vika muzika
Nema vera nitu granica
Mojot svet se osum noti
Edna dusa balkanska. (x2)

Sonce me budi vo postela
Pesna me gali vo dusata
Tri spomeni sto bolea
Vecno gi izbrisav jas.

Mojot svet se vika muzika
Nema vera nitu granica
Mojot svet se osum noti
Edna dusa balkanska. (x2)

Naj, na, naj, na, na, na, naj, na
Naj, na, naj, na, na, na, naj, na
Naj, na, naj, na, na, na, naj, na
Na, na, na, naj, na,
Eeeeeeeejjj...

Mojot svet se vika muzika
Nema vera nitu granica
Mojot svet se osum noti
Edna dusa balkanska,
Mojot svet se osum noti
Edna dusa balkanska.

Macedonian Coat of Arms

After independance in 1992 Macedonia retained the coat of arms adopted in 1946 as the emblem of the People's Republic of Macedonia within Yugoslavia.

Macedonian coat of arms

The coat of arms is described this way:
The coat-of-arms is composed by a double bent garland of ears of wheat, tobacco and poppy, tied by a ribbon with the pattern of a traditional costume. In the centre of such a circular room there are mountains, rivers, lakes and the sun; where the ears join there is a red five-pointed star.
All this represents "the wealthy of our country, the struggle and the freedom".
In forefront of the coat of arms is the Shar Mountain, and the waters of Ohrid Lake. The Coat is bounded with wheat and poppy plant laterally, and on the basis with a Macedonian national motif, often found on the Macedonian national outfits (dresses).
