costarica Flag1Costa Rican National Anthem (Himno Nacional de Costa Rica) Lyrics
Noble homeland, your beautiful flag

Expression of your life it gives us:
Under the limpid blue of your skies,
Peace reigns, white and pure.

In the tenacious battle of fruitful toil,
That brings a glow to men’s faces,
Your sons, simple farm hands,
Gained eternal renown, esteem and honour,
Gained eternal renown, esteem and honour.

Hail, gentle country!
Hail, loving mother!
If anyone should attempt to besmirch your glory,
You will see your people, valiant and virile,
Exchange their rustic tools for weapons.

Hail, O homeland! Your prodigal soil
Gives us sweet sustenance and shelter.
Under the limpid blue of your sky,
May peace and labour ever live!


Flag History

The Central American flag remained in use in Costa Rica until 1848 when,
in response to events in France, it decided to incorporate the French colors
into the national flag. This was accomplished by adding a central red stripe.
The coat of arms was revised and placed in the center of the flag. In 1906,
they were placed on a white disc on the red stripe, and later on an oval, set
towards the hoist.
