Ne mutlu Türküm diyene

Ne mutlu Türküm diyene! (English: How happy is the one who calls himself/herself a Turk!) is a motto of the Republic of Turkey. Mustafa Kemal Atatürk used this phrase in his speech delivered for the 10th Anniversary of the Republic of Turkey, on October 29, 1933 (Republic Day) for the first time. In 1972, the Turkish Ministry of National Education added this phrase to the Student Oath.[1][2] This was annulled by the AKP government in 2013.[3]
