Tavisupleba

Tavisupleba (Georgian:თავისუფლება, pronounced; "Freedom") is Georgia's national anthem. It was adopted in May 2004 as the Georgian national anthem, together with a new national flag and union jack. The reform of the symbols was brought about in the bloodless Rose Revolution after the popular overthrow of the previous government. The score, taken from the Georgian operas Abesalom da Eteri ("Absalom and Eteri") and Daisi ("The Nightfall"), by the Georgian composer Zacharia Paliashvili (Georgian: ზაქარია ფალიაშვილი), was adapted by Ioseb Kechakmadze (Georgian: იოსებ კეჭაყმაძე) to construct it. David Magradze composed the lyrics.

On 20 May 2004, almost five months later President Eduard Shevardnadze's withdrawal in the Rose Revolution, the Georgians ' current national anthem was adopted by the Assembly of Georgia. At the first General meeting of the Georgian Parliament's sixth commencement on 22 April 2004 the bill was introduced. An initiative was filed by the Minister of Culture Giorgi Gabashvili to recognize the "Tavisufleba" as the national anthem of the Republic of Georgia; eventually, music was conducted for the deputies.
