Flames of Hamnam, Banner for Victory in 2012: Rodong Sinmun
Pyongyang, January 24 (KCNA) -- All sectors and units should fan up the flames of Hamnam in order to adorn this year as a year of shining victory when an era of prosperity is unfolding, true to the behests of leader Kim Jong Il, Rodong Sinmun says in a bylined article on Tuesday.

The flames of miracle and innovation, kindled in South Hamgyong Province, are the banner of general offensive for great victory in 2012, the banner for a fresh turn, the article says, adding:

The flames of Hamnam represent the stout offensive spirit to carry out the tasks assigned by the party on the highest level in the shortest period, the strong spirit of national self-esteem to advance ahead of the world level of its own accord and the spirit of pioneer to open the gate to prosperity before anybody else at their native places and work sites.

The high national dignity of the people in Hamnam is just the high pride that Kim Il Sung's nation is the most resourceful and intelligent nation in the world, the bold will and gut that it can do anything if it is determined to do and the steadfast fighting spirit to advance ahead of the world with its own strength and technology.

As we near the victory of building a thriving nation and as the sound of our dynamic footsteps becomes louder, the enemies' moves will grow more vicious. But, nothing can break the revolutionary stamina of the descendents of President Kim Il Sung and the soldiers and disciples of Kim Jong Il who are going through any difficulties with their high national self-esteem no matter how much water may flow under bridge.

If all the sectors and units rise up as South Hamgyong Province did and all the people make redoubled efforts as those in the province did, our country can reach the high eminence of prosperity at an early date. If everyone works miracle and innovation at his or her worksite, going through any trial and hardship with the same disposition of Hamnam forerunners, he or she can become an honorable performer of innovation and merit in the ongoing grand advance.
