In French

Allons enfants de la Patrie,

le jour de gloire est arrivé

Contre nous de la tyrannie

L'étendard sanglant est levé,

L'étendard sanglant est levé!

Entendez-vous dans les campagnes

Mugir ces féroces soldiers!

Ils viennent jusque dans vos bras

Égorger vos fils et vos compagnes.Refrain:

Aux armes citoyens,

Formez vos bataillons.

Marchons! Marchons!

Qu'un sang impur

Abreuve nos sillonsQue veut cette horde d'esclaves

De traîtres, de rois conjurés?

Pour qui ces ignobles entraves

Ces fers dès longtemps préparés

Ces fers dès longtemps préparés

Français, pour nous, Ah quel outrage

Quel transport il doit exciter!

C'est nous qu'on ose méditer

De rendre à l'antique esclavage


Quoi! Des cohortes étrangères

Feraient la loi dans nos foyers!

Quoi! Ces phalanges mercenaires

Terrasseraient nos fiers guerriers.

Terrasseraient nos fiers guerriers.

Grand Dieu! Par des mains enchaînées

Nos fronts, sous le joug, se ploieraient.

De vils despotes deviendraient

Les maîtres de nos destinées


Tremblez tyrans, et vous

perfides L'opprobe de tous les partis.

Tremblez, vos projets parricides

Vont enfin recevoir leur prix!

From enfin recevoir leur prix!

Tout est soldier pour vous combattre.

S'ils tombent nos jeunes héros,

La terre en produit de nouveaux

Contre vous, tous prêts à se battre


Français en guerriers magnanimes

Portez ou retenez vos coups.

Épargnez ces tristes victimes

A regrets s'armant contre nous!

A regrets s'armant contre nous!

Mais ce despote sanguinaire

Mais les complices de Bouillé

Tous les tigres qui sans pitié

Déchirent le sein de leur mère!


Amour Sacré de la Patrie

Conduis, soutiens nos braves vengeurs.

Liberté, Liberté chérie

Combats avec tes défenseurs

Combats avec tes défenseurs

Sous nos drapeaux, que la victoire

Accoure à tes mâles accents

Que tes ennemis expirants

Voient ton triomphe et nous, notre gloire


Quand nos aînés n'y seront plus

Nous y trouverons leur poussière

Et la trace de leur vertus!

Et la trace de leur vertus!

Bien moins jaloux de leur survivre

Que de partager leur cercueil.

Nous aurons le sublime orgueil

De les venger ou de les suivre

entrerons dans la carrière


And in the English translation

Up, children of the fatherland!

The day of fame is here.

We against tyranny,

The bloody banner raised.

The bloody banner raised.

Do you hear the

roar of the cruel warriors in the fields ?

They are pushing us to behead

your sons, your wives!Refrain: To arms, citizens!

Close the ranks,

forward, let's march! Let the

unclean blood

water our fields!What does this horde of slaves, of

traitors, of conspiratorial kings want ?

For whom are these common fetters,

These irons long prepared?

These long-prepared irons?

French, for us, ah! what shame,

what anger this must arouse!

One dares to think of

bringing Us into old bondage!


What! Foreign rabble

would rule over our homes!

What! These mercenaries would bring down

Our proud warriors!

Slay our proud warriors!

Great god! With chains on

our hands, our heads would bow to the yoke.

Vile despots would

determine our fate!


Tremors, tyrants and you wicked

shame of all parties,

tremble! Your wicked plans

are finally getting paid back!

You will finally get paid back!

Everyone is a soldier to fight you,

when you fall, our young heroes,

the earth beget new ones who

are ready to fight you.


French, you noble warriors,

deal your blows or withhold them!

Spare these sad victims

Who reluctantly arm themselves against us.

Who reluctantly arm themselves against us.

But these bloodthirsty despots,

But these accomplices of Bouillé,

All these tigers who ruthlessly

tear apart their mother's breast!


Holy love for the fatherland,

guide, support our avenging arms.

Freedom, beloved freedom,

fight with your defenders!

Fight with your defenders!

So that victory under our flags

rushes to the aid of the sounds of strong men,

So that your dying enemies

see your victory and our glory!


We will tread on the way of life,

When the older ones will no longer

be there, We will find their dust

and their virtues there.

And find a trace of their virtues.

Rather share their coffin

Than they want to survive,

We will with lofty pride

avenge them or follow them.

  • Patrick Thaiday, a performer

Wallis Futuna: Plants

The three main islands of "Wallis (Uvea) and Futuana" are Wallis with an area of around 76 km², the island of Futuna with an area of 46 km² and the uninhabited island of Alofi with an area of 18 km². They are of volcanic origin and are relatively mountainous.

The evergreen rainforest that originally existed here was significantly decimated by deforestation and clearing. There are only small remnants of the rainforest on Wallis, while there is still 20% rainforest on Futuna and even 60% on the uninhabited island of Alofi. A so-called "toafa", a vegetation comparable to the macchiea, has spread over the cleared areas. Here you can find casuarines, screw trees and ferns.
