Here are the first few lines of the BUFLA Anthem promoting Unity
You may have an opinion that is different than mine
You may have a job that is different than mine
Your religion and race may be different than mine
We are the people of one free country with one flag
And holding that flag we sing the song of Unity
We are BUFLA
We are BUFLA
We are BUFLA
