Azerbaijan - Soaring Eagle

"The soul of our people is pained and crying because 'our eagle' [the shape of Azerbaijan on a map] is desperately trying to survive the countless attacks targeting our bird. But never forget that an eagle is the king of all birds. A day will come when our eagle will be healed, and then we will soar high with dignity, power and grace."
