Director of Communications Fahrettin Altun shared the “Red Apple” anthem on his Twitter account by saying, “For us, the Red Apple means great and strong Turkey. It is the sacred march of our nation that made history from Manzikert to July 15. The Red Apple is a great plane tree that provides shade for the downtrodden to refresh. The Red Apple is what the entire humanity has longed for from Gibraltar to Hedjaz and from the Balkans to Asia.
The video of the Red Apple anthem emphasizes that the same spirit prevailed from the Victory of Manzikert in 1071 to the foundation of the Ottoman Empire, from the Conquest of Istanbul to the Battle of Çanakkale and the War of Independence, and from the Epic of July 15 to the current day.
The video also includes the recital by President Erdoğan of the first verses of Surah al-Fath.
