Mauritius National Anthem
Motherland

Glory to thee, Motherland,
O motherland of mine.
Sweet is thy beauty,
Sweet is thy fragrance,
Around thee we gather
As one people,
As one nation,
In peace, justice and liberty.
Beloved country, may God bless thee
For ever and ever.

Interesting facts
The country of Mauritius includes the island of Mauritius, Rodrigues and the outer islands (Agalega, St. Brandon, two disputed territories, and a number of smaller islands.)

The main island of Mauritius (called Mauritius) is only 28 miles wide and 40 miles long. It is of volcanic origin and is almost entirely surrounded by coral reefs.

Mark Twain wrote “Heaven was copied after Mauritius.”

Port Louis, both the capital and the largest city of Mauritius, was set up in 1736 by the French East India Company. The capital city is home to 40% of the national population.

Mauritius is home to some world-famous public beaches including the fun-named “Flic en Flac,” as well as Pereybere, Tamarin, Blue Bay, La Morne, Belle Mare, and Grand Bay.

Arab sailors first visited Mauritius during the Middle Ages, naming the island Dina Arobi.

In 1507, Portuguese navigator Diogo Fernandes Pereira was the first European to land in Mauritius. He named the island ‘Ilha do Cirne‘. The Portuguese did not stay long.

In 1598, a Dutch squadron landed in Mauritius at Grand Port under Admiral Wybrand Van Warwyck. He named the island “Mauritius” after Prince Maurice van Nassau, the ruler of the Dutch Republic.

The Dutch established a small colony on the island in 1638, introducing sugar cane, domestic animals and deer, but abandoned Mauritius in 1710.

France, which already controlled neighboring Île Bourbon (now Réunion Island), took control of Mauritius in 1715 and renamed it Isle de France.
