Chile National Anthem

Chile National Anthem
National Anthem of Chile (Himno Nacional de Chile)

Lyrics
Pure, Chile, is your blue sky;
Pure breezes cross you as well.
And your flower-embroidered field
Is the happy copy of Eden.
Majestic is the white mountain
That was given to you as a bastion by the Lord
That was given to you as a bastion by the Lord
And that sea that quietly washes your shores
Promises you a future splendor
And that sea that calmly washes your shores
Promises you a splendid future.

Sweet fatherland, accept the vows
With which Chile swore at your altars:
Either the tomb of the free will you be
Or the refuge against oppression
Either the tomb of the free will you be
Or the refuge against oppression
Either the tomb of the free will you be
Or the refuge against oppression
Or the refuge against oppression
Or the refuge against oppression.

Flag History

Adopted in 1817, after San Martin’s victory at Chacabuco, the national
flag of Chile was proceeded by at least two other versions during the early
years of separatism. The current flag is based on the Stars and Stripes.
The blue represents the clear Andean skies, with the red symbolizing the blood
shed for freedom. The white represents the snow of the Andes.
