Monegasque, the national language of the Monegasque people, is mostly only used by the elderly but is taught to the youngest in the Principality's schools.

Besides, the country's anthem is written in Monegasque. 

 

Here is a part of the Principality's anthem: 

 

 

Despoei tugiù sciü d'u nostru paise

Se ride au ventu un meme pavayun

Despoei tugiù a curù russa e gianca

E stà r'emblema d'a nostra libertà!

Grandi e piciui r'an tugiù respetà !

Since the beginning of time, the same flag 

Floats joyfully in the wind of our country

The red and white colors have always been

The symbol of our freedom

Big and small have always respected it!
