D’argent à une aigle de gueules, au vol abaissé, membrée, becquée et couronnée d’or, empiétant une montagne de trois coupeaux de sable issant d’une mer d’azur mouvant de la pointe et ondée d’argent.

Nissa Carneval
(Nice Carnival)
Nissart lyrics by Jules Bessi, music by Léon Pivet. Traditional from County of Nice.

This song was composed for the occasion of Carnival 1889.

Es counvengut,
Es escrich en l’istòria
Que ben avan lu Grec e Sarrasin
Naissèt aissi Carneval, plen de glòria...
 It’s agreed,
It’s written in history
That long ago before Greeks and Saracens (1)
Was born here Carnival, full of glory...

1. In the Middle Ages, “Saracen” was for Muslims.

• revue Lou Sourgentin, Nice, n° 80, 1988, p. 35.
