[On the left side]
On a summer day of 1941
Hitler went at us with fire.
In the spring of 1945
he choked in fire.

[On the right side]
We were loyal to our oath
by defending our people.
We signed at the Reichstag
and finished our campaign.

[On the bottom]
We are strengthening our defense
with the holy love of the motherland.
Whoever dares to touch us,
has himself to blame!
