"For the Gambia Our Homeland" is the national anthem of the Gambia. The words were written by Virginia Julia Howe and the music composed by Jeremy F. Howe. It is based on the traditional Mandinka song "Foday Kaba Dumbuya." It was adopted after an international competition to produce a state anthem (and flag) before the country declared independence in 1965.
