Fair Antigua, We Salute Thee ("Uljas Antigua, me tervehdimme sinua") on Antiguan ja Barbudan (Antigua ja Barbuda) kansallislaulu.[1][2][3] Laulun on sanoittanut Novelle Hamilton Richards ja säveltänyt Walter Garnet Picart Chambers. Siitä tuli kansallislaulu maan itsenäistyttyä vuonna 1967.[2] God Save the Queen on vieläkin maan kuningashymni.[3]

Fair Antigua and Barbuda!
We thy sons and daughters stand
Strong and firm in
Peace or danger
To safe-guard our Native Land
We commit ourselves to building
A true nation brave and free;
Ever striving, ever seeking,
Dwell in love and unity


Raise the standard! Raise it boldly!
Answer now to duty's call
To the service of thy country,
Sparing nothing, giving all;
Gird your loins and join the battle
'Gainst fear, hate and poverty,
Each endeavouring, all achieving,
Live in peace where man is free.


God of nations, let Thy blessings
Fall upon this land of ours;
Rain and sunshine ever sending,
Fill her fields with crops and flowers;
We her children do implore Thee,
Give us strength, faith, loyalty,
Never failing, all enduring
To defend her liberty.
