Here is an English translation of the Philippine pledge:

“I love the Philippines.

It is the land of my birth;
It is the home of my people.

It protects me and helps me to be strong, happy and useful.

In return I will heed the counsel of my parents;
I will obey the rules of my school;
I will perform the duties of a patriotic, law-abiding citizen.

I will serve my country unselfishly and faithfully.

I will be a true Filipino in truth, in words and deed.”

“Oath of a Patriot”


I love the Philippines.
This is the land of my birth.
This is the home of my race.
By her (the land) I am watched and helped
To become strong, happy, and productive.
In return, I will listen to the counsel of my parents,
I will obey the regulations of my school,
I will fulfill the responsibilities of a patriotic citizen,
obedient to the law,
I will serve my country without selfishness
and with complete integrity,
I will try to be a true Filipino
In thought, in word, and in deed.”

usually said by civil servants between 1934 to 1945.

I swear: I will be faithful and obedient to the leader of the German empire and people, Adolf Hitler, to observe the law, and to conscientiously fulfil my official duties, so help me God!

Jamaican National Pledge

Usually recited during a government official’s beginning and end of term, a shortened version is also used for Jamaican schools.

Before God and All mankind.
I pledge the love and loyalty of my heart
The wisdom and courage of my mind,
The strength and vigour of my body
in the service of my fellow citizens.

I promise to stand up for justice,
Brotherhood and Peace, to work diligently and creatively,
To think generously and honestly, so that,
Jamaica may, under God, increase in beauty, fellowship
and prosperity, and play her part in advancing the welfare
of the whole human race.

Belizean Pledge of Allegiance

we unfurl your colors true,

White, the Scarlet and the Royal Blue.

pledge allegiance and with pride,

you and your heaven wild ride.

pledge to make you always fly,

this or bit of London style.

the unity for which we stand,

each heart and join each hand.

under God our nation rules,

so we say, “Fly High” Fly Proud” “Fly Free”,

our standards be.
