Гимн Меря - Неофициальный гимн Мерянии - National Anthem of Merya (Merjamaa) - Мерянский национальный гимн

The Fate gave us this northern ancient land.
For us, there is no country more beautiful than this.
The Sun is shining on thee after a century gloom again!
Thou art the land of our ancestors, our beloved Motherland!

Chorus:

Long live Meryanland, our father's house,
Let be the spirit of our ancestors illuminate us our way!
We will to renew thee by our patience, by our faith, by our intelligence and by our labor!
Thou will live forever!

This is the spirit of ancient legends and tales
who is saved in ours rivers, lakes, forests and fields.
And let never fade thy beauty!
Nobody are given to break us never!

The Merya people inhabited a territory corresponding roughly to what is now the area of the Golden Ring or Zalesye region of Russia: Yaroslavl, Kostroma, Ivanovo, and Vladimir oblasts. Some of the inhabitants of several districts of Kostroma and Yaroslavl present themselves as Meryan, although in recent censuses, they were registered as Russians. The modern Merya people have their own websites to show their flag, coat of arms and national anthem, participating in discussions on the subject in Finno-Ugric networks.
2010 saw the release of the film Ovsyanki (english title: "Silent Souls"), based on the novel of the same name, devoted to the life of modern Merya people.
