Also known as Intermeco
Music Dušan Šestić
Adopted 10 February 1998

Državna himna Bosne i Hercegovine (Cyrillic: Државна химна Босне и Херцеговине, National Anthem of Bosnia and Herzegovina) is the national anthem of Bosnia and Herzegovina. It is one of the four national anthems (along with that of Spain, San Marino and Kosovo) in the world to have no official lyrics.1 The anthem was adopted on 25 June 1999, by the promulgation of the Law on the National Anthem of Bosnia and Herzegovina,2 replacing the previous anthem, "Jedna si jedina", which excluded the country's Serb and Croat communities, though, was in use from 10 February 1998, as the flag and coat of arms.

Bosnian Serb from Banja Luka, Dušan Šestić composed the melody, to which initially there were no lyrics under the working title Intermeco, which is commonly referred to as the title of the anthem.

Lyrics written by Dušan Šestić, the original composer, and Benjamin Isović were accepted by a parliamentary commission in February 2009.3 The decision still requires approval of the Council of Ministers of Bosnia and Herzegovina and the Parliamentary Assembly of Bosnia and Herzegovina and the House of Peoples of Bosnia and Herzegovina.4 The lyrics do not mention the two administrative entities or the constitutional nations that make up the state, and end with the line "We are going into the future, together!".

Proposed Bosnian Lyrics

Ti si svjetlost duše
Vječne vatre plam
Majko naša zemljo Bosno
Tebi pripada
Divno plavo nebo
Hercegovine
U srcu su tvoje rijeke
Tvoje planine
Ponosna i slavna
Krajina predaka
Živjećeš u srcu našem
Dov'jeka
Pokoljenja tvoja
Kazuju jedno:
Mi idemo u budućnost
Zajedno!
Mi idemo u budućnost
Zajedno!

English Translation

You're the light of the soul
Eternal fire's flame
Mother of ours, land of Bosnia
I belong to you
In the heart are yours
Rivers, mountains
Blue sea
Of Bosnia and Herzegovina
Proud and famous
Land of ancestors
You shall live in our hearts
Ever more
Generations of yours
Show up one:
We go into the future
Together!
