National anthem of St Olaf[edit | edit source]

The national anthem of St. Olaf, titled “Back in St Olaf” was written by Ramon Hokstad on January 24th, 1900 after the Illuminated Winter Uprising on the night of December 31st, 1899. It was first published by way of pamphlet on June 17th, 1900. Kevin Forsmo composed the anthem by order of King Haakon I in 1923. The anthem got its premiere on December 31st, 1924 for the 25th anniversary of the uprising. The piece had however been used under an alternative composition by workers since 1905.

The anthem has become a song of unity with all parishes and communities of St. Olaf and due to its patriotic, unpolitical sentiments has remained the national anthem during the monarchical and presidential eras.

Tilbaye i Sankt Ǫlav, hwǫ lysene e lyse
Jey skinne min fakkel yennem natten
Mit vlay winke i stjenehimmel
Det bǫelye vǫ miy, vǫ diy, ǫy det winke hǫej

Jey elske diy, mit land
Vǫ diy jey ha kaempet vǫ diy, at jey e dǫede
Jey vǫlade je aldiy ude av syne
Sankt Ǫlav, e, hwǫ mit lys skinne lys

Olaf Minnesotan language[edit | edit source]

Olaf Minnesotan (Ǫlav Minnesǫtansq) is a North Germanic language spoken primarily in St Olaf, where it is the official language. It is a daughter language of Danish.

Together with the Scandinavian languages as well as Faroese, Icelandic and some extinct languages it constitutes the North Germanic languages.

It evolved from Danish in the 19th century after the Olaftarian socially transgressive minority of Skjærhalden went to form its own society, ultimately forming the State of St Olaf in 1923. The first traces of the linguistic shape shift are found in the Olaftarian Order of Independence of 1878, in which the Olaf Minnesotans claimed land of current-day Aonach as its own.

"Wi swaeye pea et ban av ved, som wi skal eǫbe, hwad de e wǫes hǫejtideliyt. I det yǫde, det bede ǫy vǫvaedeliye. Wi skal kaempe vǫ at avslutte uetvaediyhed, sǫm wǫes bedstevaede hawde adwaet ǫs. Sej skal wae’e wǫes." - Alan Tangerud, Olaftarian Order of Independence, 1878.
Translation: We do solemnly swear upon the child of peace that we shall conquer what is ours. In the good, the better and awful. We shall fight to end the injustice of which our grandfathers had warned us. Victory shall be ours.

On 1 August 2014 the letter o was officially replaced with the ǫ, becoming true to its actual pronunciation in Olaf Minnesotan phonology.

The flag became the flag of the Olaftarian socially transgressive minority of Skjærhalden and represented the loyalty to the Danish-Norwegian personal union in the 19th century. The same flag was used as the nation's official flag from 1923 to 1960 as the country was led by King Haakon I and King Olav I. More recently the flag became a symbol to monarchists in the former Republic of St. Olaf. It was subsequently used to reestablish the monarchy in St Olaf, placing the nation under the reign of Queen Astrid I on May 31st, 2014.
