Ecuador National Anthem

Ecuador National Anthem
We Salute You, Our Homeland (Salve, Oh Patria)

Lyrics
Oh homeland, we greet you a thousand times!
Glory be to you!
Your breast overflows joy and peace
And your radiant face
brighter than the sun shining we see.

The worthy sons of the soil
Which magnificently adorns Pichincha,
They always declared you as their sovereign lady
And shed their blood for you.
God observed and accepted that sacrifice,
And this blood was the prolific seed
Of other heroes who amazed the world,
And in turn, of thousands arising around you.

Flag History
The 1819 flag of Greater Colombia was restored in Ecuador in 1860 and since
then the flags of Ecuador and Colombia have been very similar. The national
arms were added to the center of the basic civil flag in 1900, creating a
distinct flag for national and state purposes. The civil flag on land and sea
does not have the arms while it always contains the arms when used abroad.
