The location of human and pre-human habitation that dates back two million years, remnants of Azerbaijan's history include Bronze Age petroglyphs and medieval structures. In modern times, it was the first Muslim-majority country to have operas, theater, and plays. The Azerbaijan Democratic Republic (ADR) also established on May 28, 1918, was the first secular Muslim-majority country built on the principles of a western style democracy with a constitution that granted equal rights to all citizens, including voting right for women. That entity, however, existed only for 23 months as it was invaded and incorporated into the Soviet Union by the Red Army under the name Azerbaijan SSR. At the verge of the Soviet Union's collapse, ethnic strife in Nagorno-Karabakh and Moscow's indifference to the conflict resulted in calls for independence and secession, which culminated in Black January. Subsequently, the ADR's flag was restored as the state flag and, following that, the modern Republic of Azerbaijan emerged as a successor to Azerbaijan SSR on October 18, 1991.
Mammad Amin Rasulzade was an Azerbaijani statesman, scholar, public figure and the first and only president of Democratic Republic of Azerbaijan (1918–1920). His expression "The flag once raised will never fall!" has become the motto of the independence movement in Azerbaijan in the 20th century.
Dawn of Man
"Your people welcome you to their nation, Rasulzade! You are practically the father of the nation, the one who longed for independence and eventually succeeded in granting the Azerbaijanis their own country. The Azerbaijan Democratic Republic did not last long, as it collapsed within two years. But you did not give up so easily. Your struggle for independence after 1920 was remarkable. Your expression, "The flag, once raised, will never fall!", became the motto of the 20th century independence movement in Azerbaijan. You hoped for Azerbaijan to become independent once more. Unfortunately, you did not see this happen in your lifetime, but Azerbaijan did gain independence and the people expressed their thanks to you by building many memorials.
The people of Azerbaijan call for you help once more! They need a leader like you: one who does not give up so easily and fights till the bitter end. Will you build up a magnificent empire, take your rightful place in this world and bring wealth and prosperity? Can you build a civilization that will stand the test of time?"
Introduction: "I welcome you to my nation, Azerbaijan. I am Mammad Rasulzade, the leader."
Introduction: "You stand in Baku, the grand capital of Azerbaijan. I welcome you as a friend.. or should I challenge you as your foe?"
Defeat: "The flag, once raised, will never fall! And the flag has been raised.. Remember that!"
Defeat: "You cannot stop us. No one can stop us."
