Dahp Prampi Mesa Moha Chokchey (Khmer: ដប់ប្រាំពីរមេសាមហាជោគជ័យ, "Great Victorious Seventeenth of April") was the national anthem of Democratic Kampuchea from at least January 1976. Although the anthem may have been in use in the 'liberated zone' much earlier, it was proclaimed the national anthem in article 18 of the Constitution of Kampuchea which was promulgated on the 5th January 1976. They say that the Khmer Rouge themselves made the song but its status remains unknown.

Famous quotes containing the word mesa:
“This mesa plain had an appearance of great antiquity, and of incompleteness; as if, with all the materials for world-making assembled, the Creator had desisted, gone away and left everything on the point of being brought together, on the eve of being arranged into mountain, plain, plateau. The country was still waiting to be made into a landscape.”
—Willa Cather (18731947)
