[On the flag]
Away with Polish landlords
Away with imperialists of all countries
"Curses, curses on Polish landlords!"
Death and shame on the perpetrators of violence!
"Comrades-brothers, hurry and take up your rifles"
To launch the last counter-attack against them!
Storm clouds are gathering above free Russia
And the executioners have raised their sword.
Worker! Peasant! With your powerful hand
Break those enemy swords!
"From fields and factories, from behind ploughs and from"
To rifles! Close ranks!
"So that the insistent, iron battalions are on the move"
Under the sign of the victorious star!
--Grandfather [uncle] MironClose Full Translation
