Ne Mutlu Türküm Diyene letter and Flag of Northern Cyprus on the Pentadaktylos in Cyprus

Ne mutlu Türküm diyene! (English: How happy is the one who calls himself 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 Ministry of National Education of the Republic of Turkey introduced this phrase to the Student Oath.[1][2]
